Las Gardenias Group's story

Elizabeth is 53 years old and lives with her son who is still in school. She is secretary to the group "LAS GARDENIAS", which is made up of 6 hard working borrowers who have already been through 11 loan cycles.

Elizabeth has worked as a street trader selling food for 15 years. In her spare time she provides laundry services. This is how she helps her husband with the household costs. Two years ago she bought a car which her husband uses for work.

Her loan will be invested in buying a new stove and cooking pots in order to continue preparing her delicious food for clients. Her greatest wish is to run a juicing business from her home. The group thanks KIVA lenders for the loan provided. Elizabeth is first on the right in the picture.

In this group: Yuli Esther, Sara Milagros, Edgardo Humberto, Elea, Matilde Aurelia, Elizabeth
