A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy avocados, peaches, plums, and pears.

Las Malinches Group's story

The new members of the group are Anastacia and Cirina. With their loan they are going to buy avocados, peaches, plums, and pears.

Cirina, 31, is married and has three daughters. Two are studying in elementary school and the other one is little. She sells seasonal fruit. She requested her loan to buy avocados, peaches, and pears.

She began her business three years ago with some savings she had. Her husband taught her to work selling seasonal fruit. She buys the fruit in the plaza and resells it in other plazas. Her business is important because she likes to sell fruit and she has her own business, which gives her income for her daughters' expenses.

Her business is popular for the quality, flavor, and freshness of her fruit. This business helps her to improve her family financially. Her dreams and hopes are to have more sales and for her daughters to like to work and to be good people.

The members of the group want to tell Kiva and Fundación Realidad, "Thank you very much for your loans. They help us to keep on working in our businesses. Continue supporting us with your loans."

In this group: Adelaida , Raquel , Genoveva, Anastacia , Cirina
