A loan of $4,800 helped a member to purchase groceries, drinks, dairy products, bakery products and other items.

Amanecer Group's story

This group is from the city of Encarnación and came about because of contacts one of the members in the area had with the foundation's loan officer who, after learning how the program worked, decided to encourage her friends and neighbors. Currently the group is in its 18th loan cycle and has been working with the Foundation since the year 2006.

One of the group's members is Ms. Alicia who is married with two children. She tells us she has a small grocery store in her home, and her husband earns a living selling natural gas, and they also provide rental services for children's events. They both help each other get the family ahead. Alicia comments that she is doing very well with her sales and so she is requesting the loan, so she may stock her business, giving it more variety in order to continue bringing in income.

She wishes to purchase grocery items, drinks, dairy products, bakery items and other things. She appreciates the foundation and Kiva for this opportunity for progress they are being given.

In this group: Mirtha Leticia, Gladys, Elsa, Mirtha, Lourdes, Arminda, Martha, Marta, María, Pamela, Ninfa, Bernardina, Elena*, Alicia*
