Madres Unidas Group's story

This is the Madres Unidas group, made up of entrepreneurial people. Margarita, 64, is the mother of nine grown children. Margarita makes a living selling stockings, underwear, and umbrellas, a job she has done for many years.

She used her Kiva loan to buy more merchandise for her business. Her greatest desire is to have her own stand and to help her grandchildren with their education.

The group is grateful to the Kiva lenders.
