A loan of $1,150 helped a member to buy sugar, rice, eggs, chiles, tomatoes, oranges, and soda.


Xochicalco Group's story

Norberta is going to use her loan to buy bread, Sabritas-brand potato chips, sodas, and yogurt. The rest of the members continue with their jobs. They thank Kiva and Visión Fund for their loans. Evarista, 72, is a widow and has three children, a woman and two men who are already married. She has a grocery store for fruits and vegetables. She requested her loan to buy sugar, rice, eggs, chiles, tomatoes, oranges, and sodas to stock her store and give her customers good service. Her business is important for her because she helps herself and has income to buy food for her family. In addition, she is planning to expand her business and continue buying more merchandise to have the store well stocked. Evarista is happy with the loan she is going to receive. Her dreams and hopes are to continue working to have her income and, God willing, for her business to grow and her children to not need anything.
