Safiro De Morelos Group's story

This united group is called “Safiro de Morelos” and includes Celia, Socorro, and Amalia Placida. They will use the money from this loan to buy corn seed, fertilizer, and insecticide. Dionicia will buy Tupperware. Alicia will buy butter, eggs, cooking gas, sugar, cocoa, and jelly. Juan Carlos will buy ladies’, men’, and children’s shoes. Laura will buy creams, lipsticks, mascara, and nail polish. Miguel Ángel will buy king sized bedspreads, placemats, drapes, and sheets.

Young Miguel Ángel is 20 years old, single, and sells bedspreads, and linen. He requested a loan to buy bedspreads, quits, sheets, pillows, and towels. He started his business one year ago after his uncle invited him and he thought it was a good idea. He sells on foot and goes out to offer his products to his neighbors. His business is important because it helps him improve his quality of life and he is proud to sell his products and enjoys meeting other people. He is happy about this loan because it will give him the chance to invest and grow his business. He will use his earnings to reinvest into merchandise so that he can grow his business. His dreams are to have a larger bedspread and linen business and he plans to achieve this dream with the help of his Kiva loans.

The members of the group would like to tell Kiva and Fundación Realidad, “We appreciate your loans. We feel secure knowing that you are helping us grow and live better with our families.”

In this group: Celia, Socorro, Dionicia, Alicia, Juan Carlos, Laura Leticia, Amalia Placida, Miguel Angel
