A loan of $4,875 helped a member to buy ingredients for her food business.


San Juan Masias Group's story

Priscila is a member of the 'San Juan Masía' community bank. She is 55 years old, widowed, and has five children who are all now adults. Priscila has always worked very hard to provide her children with everything they need to live a decent life and has supported them in their studies. Her business is preparing and selling food. In the past, she rented a spot in her local market but she didn't sell much. For this reason, she decided to go out into the streets to sell her products. There she found a lot of customers who were mainly local workers. Priscila works around 8 hours a day, traveling through different streets in the city. The money from this loan is very important to her because it will enable her to buy the ingredients she needs to prepare her food. In addition to her food business, Priscila also sews. In the future, she would like to have a sewing workshop and give up the food business as it is very demanding. Priscila would like to thank those who will make her loan possible: both EDAPROSPO and Kiva lenders. She thanks them for helping her community bank.
