Trabajando En Armonia Group's story

Alejandrina is a member of the group "Trabajando en Armonía" [Working in Harmony] and is 52 years old. She is married (common-law) and has 4 children. Alejandrina works selling candies and ice cream. She has set up her small business in her house where she has a glass display of the products she sells. Sometimes she also offers them as a street vendor.

Thanks to her work she can help support her family; more than anything help with the schooling of her children. She sacrifices much for her work because she walks a lot and dedicates 12 hours a day to her work.

She was taught how to make sweets by her mother-in-law, which are very good. Her faithful customers are children, transportation workers, and the public in general.

Alejandrina will use this loan to buy ice cream and ingredients to make the sweets she sells and keep working.

Alejandrina is happy that other people are helping her and her group. She is thankful to Kiva for allowing them to progress and be better people. In this photo she is the first one on the left (towards the back) in the light blue pants.

In this group: Marina Isabel, Manuel Angelo*, Mery, Luisa, Cesar Augusto Casimiro, Wendy Marianne, Susana Asteria, Alejandrina
