Espiga Y Luna Group's story

All of the members are still developing the same businesses. Señora Graciela Silvia is 48. She is in a common-law marriage and her husband works in the fields. She has one son, age 26, who works. Graciela sells women's clothing. She requested this loan for the purchase of blouses, t-shirts, and women's underwear. She started her business one year ago so that she would have something to do and because she enjoys sales and providing good customer service. Her business is important because it provides an income for her family's well-being. She is proud of having her own business, and very happy to be getting this loan because it will provide her with the opportunity to stock her business and make it pretty. She will be able to provide a good service to the young women and housewives. Her hopes and dreams are for her whole family to be happy, united, and healthy. The group members would like to tell Kiva and the Fundacion Realidad: "Thank you for these loans. You are helping us to get ahead and reach our goals. We hope you keep helping those who ask with their loans."
