Jesus Pan De Vida Group's story

The group "Jesus Pan de Vida" [Jesus, Bread of Life] is made of up of responsible members who are determined to improve their quality of life.

Nicolaza is forty-six years old and lives with a son, who is her dependent. Years ago, she worked in a restaurant called Santa Mónica de Nicolás de Piérola. Currently, she making a living selling medicinal herbs, fruits, and flowers in a market (called 8 de Febrero de Nicolás de Piérola). She has been doing this for five years. Two months ago, she started a small store in her home where her daughter helps her.

She will invest the loan in the purchase of fruits, flowers, and medicinal herbs. Her greatest wish is to grow this store that she has in her home.

The group is thankful to the Kiva investors for the loan that has been offered to them. Nicolaza is pictured second from the right, in the blue shirt. A small photo of another member, Katherine, is in the upper-right-hand corner, since she could not be present at the meeting.
