San Agustín Group's story

The communal bank San Agustín was formed by various neighbors getting together in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. All of the members the communal bank are working independently, but also they have group activities in order to strengthen their relationship. They came together with the intention of working together and through their team work be able to help their families.

Julia is one of the members of the communal bank. She works selling embroidered slippers, and she also makes cloth bells and buckles.

She is a very creative lady and she hopes to get ahead.

She has no children and her husband is employed. She is very happy in her work and the training the group receives. Thanks to her work she can help her husband and in this way be able to ease a little of the household expenses.

Julia is asking for a loan in order to buy supplies, such as slippers, beads including beaded pearls, rings and the rest of the necessary supplies in order to make her embroidered slippers.

She is grateful to the foundation and to Kiva for the opportunity that they give her.
