Peguaho Group's story

The committee is called Peguaho because that is the name of the community where they live. The group is comprised of twenty-one women who invest their loans in their respective businesses and this is how they support their families.

Gumercinda is one of the members, and she is president of the group. She says that she always encourages her friends to continue striving for their goals and dreams so they can get ahead in life. She is requesting the loan to buy vegetables so that she can continue working and offering good variety to her customers. She is grateful for the opportunity that she is receiving from Kiva and Fundación Paraguya.

In this group: Gumercinda, Zuni, Dora, Magdalena, Lucia, Victoria, De Las Nieves, Petrona, Ramona, Carmen, Tomasa, Eduviguis, Lucia, Leopoldina, Elena, Dina, Rocio, Bernarda, Graciela, Julia*, Gloria*
