A loan of $3,025 helped a member to buy corn, oil, and sugar.


Arco Iris Group's story

Narcisa is fifty-three and is a widow. She has a business selling tamales and ground corn as a street vendor. She also raises poultry like chickens and ducks. In this way, she has been able to educate her children when they were still dependent on her. Years ago, she was a housewife. She will invest this loan in the purchase of corn, oil, and sugar. Her biggest wish is to improve her home. Her group is thankful to the Kiva investors for this loan. Narcisa is the third person from the right in the photo, dressed in the blue shirt.
