Siempre Unidas De Smp Group's story

This is the “Siempre Unidas de San Martin de Porres” group. Yolanda’s one of the members. She’s 53-years-old, married and has three adult children. Yolanda works making souvenirs for events like weddings, baptisms, birthdays, etc. out of cold clay ceramics. Her customers are wholesalers that she sells her products to in quantity. She works about ten hours daily every week. She started this occupation because she needed to help her family. She’s now been doing this work for 14 years. Thanks to it she’s been able to raise her family and she’s proud of that. She will use the loan she’s requesting to buy raw materials for her business. Yolanda’s happy because the loan will make it possible for her to continue working. She’d like to say “Thank you for your support” to Kiva lenders.
