Los Capullitos Group's story

This is the Grupo Los Capullitos, or Little Buds Group, which is comprised of nine entrepreneurs that are in their 15th cycle of borrowing. Marleni is 32 years old and lives with her two school-aged children. She has had a shop that sells basic foodstuff for 5 years with a loyal base of customers. She’s asking for the loan to purchase seasonal fruitcake (panettone), chocolate, milk and sugar. Marleni's dream is to one day grow her business so she can better serve her customers and give her children a better quality of life. She is very happy with this loan and thankful to KIVA. She is the first one on the right in a black polo.
