Señor Cautivo De Ayabaca Group's story

This is the Señor Cautivo De Ayabaca Group. It is made up of nine hard-working female members, who over time have been improving their lives through their businesses. One of the members is Lucia. She is married with eight children. Two of her children are still in school. At 58 years of age, Lucia has managed to fulfil some of her dreams, such as improving her home and helping her children with their studies.

For more than five years Lucia has made a living by selling soft maize-based food. She sells this from outside her home. She will use the loan to buy supplies, such as sugar, milk, and rice. Her greatest wish is to set up a space where she can offer her products and thereby give her diners better attention.

The group is grateful to Kiva investors for their help. Lucia is the third from the right; she is wearing a black jacket and a fuchsia-coloured turtleneck top. Miriam could not be present for reasons pertaining to her job.

In this group: Rosa Guillermina, Vite Eufracia, Rosa Ysabel, Julia Matilda, Edita, Simeona, Miriam Katy*, Apolonia, Lucia
