A loan of $3,850 helped a member to buy hair coloring, gel, shampoo, rinses, hair spray, and the other supplies.

Saldivar Poty Group's story

The Saldivar Poty communal bank was formed in 2007 thanks to one of its members. The member contacted the counselor at a weekly meeting that she had in the area. She did this to find out about the type of work the Committee of Enterprising Women does. Once she was advised about the program she managed to get 18 women together. They can be found happily working together in their 15th cycle. They work together within the program in a cooperative and supportive way.

Nancy is one of the members. She has a modest and well-equipped beauty salon. She tell us that thanks to this business she has been able to get ahead and help her family. She is known as a very hard-working, enterprising, and self-sacrificing woman. One of her goals is to be able to continue growing. This way she will continue helping her family.

She is requesting the loan to buy hair coloring, gel, shampoo, rinses, hair spray, and the other supplies she needs to stock her business. She is grateful to the Fundación and Kiva for the opportunity they are giving her.
