Blanca Ometepec Group's story

This group is called “Blanca Ometepec.” The members of the group decided on this name because that’s the name of the person who formed the group and that’s why they decided to give it that name.

This story is about Blanca who is one of the group members. She’s 30 years old, married to Armando and they have three children: Carlos, Luis Ángel and Erika, who are attending first and fourth grade and the youngest is in third year of preschool. She has been making clothes for over ten years.

Blanca decided on this business because she says she wanted to find a way to improve her quality of life and that of her family and also to offer her little children a good education. She will use the loan to buy t-shirts, shirts, sport uniforms and also supplies like thread, fabric, scissors, zippers and buttons at wholesale to continue making her articles of clothing.

Her dream is to expand her locale a bit more to have it better stocked with articles of clothing and continue with her sales this way because this way she will obtain more and better income to continue supporting her children with their studies so that they can have good professional careers.

She is very grateful to Fundación Realidad and to Kiva for the support of the loan they granted because thanks to it her business will start to improve much. Her life and her family’s life will also change.
