A loan of $650 helped a member to buy material to make traditional Guatemalan clothing.


Duo Consuelo De Dios Group's story

Aura Marina is a member of the communal bank Dúo Consuelo de Dios. She is a native of San Juan Comalapa. She has three children, only one of whom is in school. This is due to the fact that Aura Marina is a widow and through her efforts she is only able to afford an education for one child. However, she has not given up and still hopes to be able to send her other children to school.

She makes and sells traditional Guatemalan clothing. She is seeking a loan so she can purchase materials to make her finished products. She hopes that Kiva can help her obtain these funds so that she will be able to continue fighting and realize her dreams.
