A loan of $1,675 helped a member to purchase lollipops, candies, gum, chocolates, etc.

3 De Mayo Group's story

The newest members of the group are Maria de Guadalupe, who plans to use the loan to purchase firewood, and Ubalda, who is going to purchase candies. The other members continue developing their activities. Ubalda is 77 years old and married. Her husband is sick and doesn't work. She has 13 children, eight boys and five girls, all of whom are grown up. Ubalda has a post selling candy and is requesting the loan to purchase lollipops, caramels, marzipan, gum and chocolates. She started her business 10 years ago because she wanted to do something and keep busy. Her business is important because it raises revenue so she can keep eating and investing. She enjoys selling candy because children appreciate it, and her sales post is known for its customer service. Ubalda is happy about the loan and plans to use it to purchase candies to expand her business. She uses her profits for sustenance and to reinvest in candies of different flavors. Her hopes and dreams are for everyone to stay in good health and for her children to lack nothing. The group members thank Kiva and partner Fundación Realidad for the loans and say "We are happy that you are supporting us with the loans to grow our businesses."
