Familia M Group's story

"Familia M" already has various cycles working with this institution. The group is formed by four members who are all family, and this is how they chose the name. Doña Juana who is the representative of the group is 46 years old and is married to señor Fidencio. Together for several years, they have a family, but currently do not have dependents.

Doña Juana sells plastics such as fibers, buckets, and tubs as well as other things. She started her business 12 years ago because she enjoys working. Her goal when she began was to have a business in which she herself would administer her time, where she could open and close at the hour she wanted. This time Doña Juana is applying for the loan to buy more merchandise. She is very happy and grateful for the loans from Visionfund and Kiva "...because my business has been able to pick up and grow little by little." Doña Juana is a great person. The only thing she desires is to ensure her quality of life for when she is no longer able to work.

The rest of the group also have their different business activities. Don Jesús will invest in clothing, Don Fidencio in costume jewelry, and Andrea in baby clothing and undergarments. The members of the group are very hardworking and responsible people. They are thankful to the institution for the loans they have been awarded that have made their businesses better and increased their quality of life as a family.

In this group: Jesús, Fidencio, Andrea, Juana
