A loan of $5,450 helped a member to buy beauty products.


La Cruz De Yerbateros Group's story

The communal group “LA CRUZ DE YERBATEROS” is formed by 11 entrepreneurial members with a lot of creativity in business. Mariana is 43 years old and has two children. She has had a small business selling beauty products for five years. She has gathered a group of loyal customers, thus generating earnings to be able to cover her living expenses.

In the future she would like to have her own place where she may sell her beauty products, generating income for her home on a day-to-day basis and thus obtaining greater financial earnings. With the loan granted she will invest in buying more beauty products and thus keep satisfying her customers' needs in order to get ahead.

Mariana and all of the members are grateful to Kiva for the loan granted and for the trust they have been given. Mariana is standing in the middle, distinguished by a brown leather jacket. She says good-bye with the promise that she will meet all of her set goals.

In this group: Flor , Isabel, Candelaria, Estefani, Rosario, Mariana, A Lishmar, Bertha, Marlene , Claudio, Milagros
