Estelar Group's story

Grupo Stellar is a borrowing group with [Kiva's field partner] Credituyo. It comprises 6 members: Jessika, Nadia (not pictured), Rosa, Yolanda, Maricarmen, and Laura. They are friends and neighbors who have known each other for several years. They have great confidence in one another, which is why they decided to form their group. All of them are dedicated to trading.

Yolanda is one of the group. She is 64 years old, married with 4 children, and lives with her husband. She has a general store, and intends to use the loan to buy more merchandise, such as groceries and canned goods. Yolanda's dream is to have the largest store in the neighborhood, well stocked, and to use her income to live well with her husband. At her age she is not able to find employment, and wants to work from home so she can be with her grandchildren, who help her in the store.

In this group: Jessika Guadalupe, Laura Esmeralda, Maricarmen, Nadia Melina*, Rosa Elia , Yolanda
