A loan of $3,100 helped a member to buy clothing for resale.

Las Palomitas Group's story

The communal bank “Las Palomitas” is comprised of seven enthusiastic members who are currently in their sixth loan cycle.

One member is María, who is 42 years old and married with four children, one of whom is still living at home. María buys and sells clothing on order for adults and children. At the moment she does not have a permanent location from which she can sell her products. She started out as an assistant helping to sell beauty products, but later became a skilled salesperson. She and her husband have been able to provide an education to their children and purchase a mototaxi, which one of their children uses for work.

Her main goal is to buy her own house. The current loan will enable her to purchase seasonal clothing such as skirts, polo shirts and blouses. She thanks the Kiva lenders for their support. In the photo she is sitting in the middle and wearing a black shirt.

In this group: Maria Jesus, Norma Sara, Maria Luz, Emilia Donatila, Cristina Veronica, Emilia, Rocio Del Pilar
