A loan of $1,950 helped a member buy spices to sell.


Esfuerzo De Mujeres Group's story

Good afternoon. This is the group "Esfuerzo De Mujeres" (The Strength of Women). It is made up of 6 members and is on its 2nd Kiva loan. They are people who have improved themselves over time and have the end goal of offering a better quality of life to their families. Such is the case with Esther, who had to start her business over again as a result of her divorce. Her business is currently selling spices and CDs.

Esther is 52 years old, separated, and has grown children. One of her dreams is to establish her business. With the loan that she asked for, she will buy spices to offer her customers.

The Esfuerzo De Mujeres group thanks those that made this loan possible. Esther is the third from the right, dressed in a turquoise shirt and pants. Shirley couldn't be present for the photo due to work.

In this group: Hilda Esther, Robert Anibal, Marleni Luz, Judith Milagros, Shirley Luisa*, Lucia Rosario
