A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy more vegetables and potatoes.

Esperanza Y Amor Group's story

The "Esperanza y Amor" group is new and made-up of seven hard-working women, who have various types of small businesses. Juana is 51 years old, single and has a 16-year-old daughter. Within the group, Juana is the secretary and she has a business selling vegetables and potatoes at the "Señor de los Milagros" market in Chosica. Years ago Juana used to work as a street vendor, selling children's clothes. Juana will use this loan to buy more vegetables and potatoes. Her biggest wish is for her daughter to study to be a professional. The group thanks Kiva lenders for this loan.

In this group: Maria Maura, Juana Lucia, Elsa Maria, Maria Rosa, Maria Elena, Margarita Lucila, Carmen Elva
