Las Positivas Group's story

Good afternoon! This is Ines, the treasurer of the 'Las Positivas' community bank. This group has 10 responsible members who are all committed to working within the Prosperity Program. They are currently on their 8th loan cycle.

Ines works selling children's and adults' clothing. Most of her customers are neighbors and family members.

Ines is very happy to be receiving her loan and she would like to use it to buy clothing such as tops, pants and jackets. This will give her a wider range of clothing to offer her customers.

Ines is married and the mother of three children. With a lot of hard work and effort, she has managed to improve her family's quality of life. Her biggest wish is to set up a small clothing store in which she can sell her merchandise.

Ines is the lady on the far left who is wearing a red jacket and blue pants. Ines is grateful to Kiva lenders for their help!
