A loan of $4,700 helped a member to buy different colors and types of wool.

Aguilas Unidas Group's story

The group is comprised of seven enterprising people who have a lot of creativity for business. That is how the members of the Aguilas Unidas communal bank are.

Gloria, age 53, has four children. She has been selling knitted goods (sweaters, pullovers, and scarves) for 20 years. Gloria has come to have loyal customers, which has generated income for her to be able to cover the household expenses. In the future she would like to have her own place where she would be able to sell her knitted goods. This way she would get greater earnings. She will use the loan that was granted to buy more wool. This way she will be able to have more orders for knitted garments and be able to get ahead.

Gloria and all of the members are grateful to Kiva and EDAPROSPO for the loan that was granted and for the trust that has been placed in them. Gloria is the first one seated on the left. She has on a red shirt and a black jacket. She says goodbye by leaving the promise that she will meet all of her proposed goals.

In this group: Norma Luz, Raul Hilberto, Modesta, Maria Rosa, Carmen Patricia, Gloria Rosa, Guadalupe
