A loan of $1,725 helped a member to buy yarn.

La Amistad Group's story

The “La Amistad” (Friendship) group consists of six enterprising women who are starting the seventh cycle. María’s 38-year-old has a spouse and three children attending school. She’s been working knitting for several years and has been able to help her husband with expenses and with her children’s schooling. María sells the clothes she knits to clothes merchants. In her free time she caters festive events to order.

She will use the loan to buy yarn to make sweaters and gloves. Her greatest wish is to have a stand where she can sell her knitwear. María is first on the right.

The group is grateful to Kiva lenders for the loan granted. Valeria appears in the inserted photo above; she was unable to attend the meeting because of health issues.

In this group: Amelia Velia, Valeria Teodora, Soledad Jessica, Maria Antonia, Maruja, Norma Ofelia
