A loan of $4,575 helped a member to buy fruits and vegetables for later sale.

Mba'apora Group's story

The Mba'apora communal bank was formed when several neighbors in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso came together. All the members of the bank have independent businesses but they also carry out joint activities in order to strengthen their solidarity.

Sra. Fidelina is one of the bank members. She is a street vendor and sells fruits and vegetables. She is a very hardworking woman with a great desire to succeed. She manages every day on behalf of her children since she is a single mother. She says that she is very satisfied with her work and the training the group receives.

Fidelina is requesting the loan to buy more fruits and vegetables, such as oranges, apples, tomatoes, onions and others. She, together with her friends, is grateful to the Fundación and to Kiva for this opportunity.
