Dúo Agua De Vida Group's story

Dúo Agua de Vida ("Water of Life" Duo) was formed by Marlena, who is 35 years old and has two small daughters. She sells traditional new and used clothing, and she makes her sales by walking from house to house. She tells us that she has her husband's full support.

Marlena is asking for this loan to buy traditional new and used clothing, and also to expand her business a little. She hopes that Kiva can give her the support she needs.
