San Martin Group's story

Greetings: This is the new group “San Martin” formed by seven enthusiastic members getting established.

Jeremías is one of the members. He is 57 years old, married with adult children. He works selling beverages such as soft drinks and mineral water. With the fruit of his labor and the help from his wife he could bring up the family. His greatest desire to to open another beverage stand and thus be sure of having higher earnings. The money he borrows will be used to buy soft drinks, beer and mineral water.

The new group “San Martin” is grateful to the Kiva loaners for their support. Jeremías is the first on the right side wearing a cream colored shirt and gray slacks.

In this group: Carlos Ricardo, Lucila Eugenia, Jeremias Marino, Edson Noel, Iliana Raquel, Elva Luzmila, Percy Nelviz
