A loan of $2,450 helped a member to buy coffee, sugar and cutlery.

Sol Naciente Group's story

The "SOL NACIENTE" [Rising Sun] communal bank is made up of 6 entrepreneurs who have a lot of creativity in their businesses. Gladys is 47 years old and has one son. For 7 years she has been selling breakfasts in a small market. Gladys says she has developed a loyal clientele which has given her enough profits to cover the household running costs. In the future she would like to have a place of her own where she can sell her breakfasts and so make better profits.

She will use the loan provided to buy more products such as coffee, sugar, cups, plates, cutlery etc. so she can make progress with her business. At the same time Gladys and all of the group members are grateful to Kiva and EDAPROSPO for the loan provided and for the confidence shown in them.

Gladys is seated in the middle wearing a black jacket. She signs off with the promise that she will meet all of her proposed payments.

In this group: Gladys Martha, Jessica Beatris, Luz, Vilma, Maria Elena, Omero Yoel
