Las Estrellitas Group's story

Aurora is 44 years old, is single, and has two children in school. She is a member of the new group "Las estrellitas" (little stars), which is made up of 7 hard-working and entrepreneurial members. Aurora has dedicated herself for the past 31 years to caring for people in their old age. From the time she was very young she had to work to help her parents and siblings since they could not count on a stable income. Currently she lives with her parents. Rosa is the only income earner in her family. In her free time she fixes gas stoves. Her loan will be invested in the purchase of parts for gas stoves and also to purchase school uniforms for her children. Her greatest desire is to see her children become professionals. The group thanks the Kiva investors for the loan. Rosa is the third person from the right side dressed in a red sweatshirt.

In this group: Irma, Aurora Lisser, Crsthian Augusto, Migeul Angel, Rosa Rocio, Raquel, Carmen
