A loan of $2,550 helped a member to purchase sweets.

Unidas Para Alcanzar El Exito Group's story

Greetings from Perú! This is the “Unidas para Alcanzar el Éxito” (United to Achieve Success) group.

María, 56 years old, is one of the members of the group. She works providing a cleaning service for the municipality of her district. On the other hand she also works selling food products like nougat and different sweets. Her work allows her to contribute to the family expenses. In the future she would like to dedicate herself solely to this work, for that she will look for a suitable place where she will set up her business.

The requested loan will be very useful to her in purchasing her sweets. In this way she will seek to supply her customers who consume the sweets that she sells. María is very grateful for her loan, especially to the Kiva lenders that help her whole communal bank.

María is dressed in green clothes and a green cap.

In this group: Marina, Carmela Teresa, Raul Eduardo*, Jose Concepcion, Maria Luzmila, Celestina
