8 De Diciembre Group's story

The members of the "8 de Diciembre" group live in the city of Villa Elisa. It is made up of 20 women who work jointly, and always in an atmosphere of respect. They are parents that try their hardest to be able to give their families what they need to have a life without hardship.

Andrea is a member of the group. She has been selling beverages for some time, thanks to which she has been able to help her family. She says the products she carries always sell well, especially on weekends, which is when she has the most sales.

She is a very hard-working and enterprising woman, and her goal is to continue growing as a small business owner, to be able to keep helping her family.

She is applying for the loan in order to buy beverages such as beers, soft drinks, wines, and others. In this way, she will be able to restock, and meet customer demand. She is very happy to be a part of the Foundation's program and of Kiva.

In this group: Justina Ramona, Maria , Mary , Linda , Gladys , Elva , Nimia , Dora , Claudelina , Andrea , Elida , Maria , Ignacia , Melisa , Sadi , Edilberta , Dolores *, Blanca *, Gloria *, Lilian *
