El Volcan De Tetela Group's story

This supportive group is called El Volcán de Tétela. It's made up of: Olegaria, who is going to buy avocado with her loan; Gloria, who is going to buy yarn, fabric, gingham, blankets, and thread; Emelia, who is going to buy milk and cream; Elizabeth, who is going to buy catalogs and shoes; and Diana Lizet, who is going to buy panties, blouses, and catalogs. Diana Lizet is 24 years-old and lives in a common law marriage with her husband. They have two boys and one is in elementary school and the other is in preschool. She sells catalog underwear and asked for the loan to buy bras, blouses, pajamas, panties, and bikinis. She began her business four years ago by means of an invitation from her aunt. Her husband supplied her to buy her first orders. Her business is important because it gives her earnings for her children and she is proud to be able to buy things for her home herself. She goes out to offer her products from house to house and she likes to spend time with others. She is happy with her loan that she will receive. She will buy underwear to supply her orders. Her hopes and dreams are for her business to continue growing, to have a shop to display her products in, and for her children to be well and to not lack anything. The women want to tell Kiva and Fundación Realidad, "Thank you very much for your loans and for supporting us in growing our business."
