La Alegría Group's story

The "La Alegria" communal bank is from the San Lorenzo area. They are all very hardworking ladies who have never had a problem with repayments. They have never let themselves go, because they have always strived and worked hard.
Fermina is a very hardworking person, and she tells us that she makes all kinds of pastries. Thanks to the skills she has with sweet things, she has been able to get ahead and get her business up and running. It's because of that effort that she's a successful micro-entrepreneur today.
She requests the loan in order to purchase the supplies she needs for making the pastries, such as flour, butter, sugar and other items. She gives thanks for the help she's getting from Fundación and Kiva.
