A loan of $1,400 helped a member buy peach plants, fertilizer, and seasonal fruits such as peaches and avocados.

Las Malinches Group's story

Genoveva is 48 years old, has a partner and 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls. Two of her children are studying in the CBTA and one boy is in primary school. She sells seasonal fruit such as avocadoes and peaches. She requested her loan to buy peach plants and fertilizer for her crops. She started her business, an inheritance from her father-in-law, one year ago. Her husband taught her how to cultivate the plants, which they bought with a loan.

Her business is important because it generates funds for food and to continue working. She sells her products in the plaza and at her community’s market. Her children and husband assist her with her business. She uses her earnings to buy plants, bags and fertilizer. Her dreams and hopes are to continue working, to have more plants, and to support her small children in continuing their educations.

The members of the group “thank Kiva and Fundacion Realidad for their loans, for having confidence in them, and for helping them to continue working in their businesses”.
