A loan of $3,275 helped a member to buy winter clothes for children.

Mujeres Al Progreso Group's story

The Mujeres Al Progreso group is comprised of nine members who are in their third cycle. These members are responsible with their group payments.

Vanessa, age 25, is in a common-law marriage and has two children, ages six and three. She sells clothes by order to her customers. She has been doing this for some years. This way she has been able to help her husband, who works as a mechanic at the Jusat company.

Vanessa has a new business project, which is setting up a small grocery store at her house.

She will use the loan to buy winter clothes for children in order to be able to offer them to her customers.

The group is grateful to the Kiva lenders for the loan that has been proffered. Vanessa is the first one on the left.

In this group: Marizola, Benjamina Gloria, Jessica, Vanessa Melani, Andrea Yolanda, Teodocio Marino, Milagros Ofelia, Richard Oswaldo, Juan Pablo
