A loan of $2,775 helped a member to purchase products for her small grocery store.

Mujeres Activas Group's story

A group is composed of 5 entrepreneurial women with a lot of creativity for business - this is what the members of the communal bank "Mujeres Activa" (Active Women) are like.

Zonia is 43 years old and married with 4 children. Zonia has had a small grocery store for 5 years. With the help of her family she has been able to improve her situation, so much so that has been able to earn the loyalty of her clients, which has generated an income for her to cover household costs. In the future she would like to have her own store where she can sell her products (sugar, coffee, milk, rice, etc.). She will invest the loan in purchasing more products and continuing to meet the needs of her clients, thereby enabling her to get ahead. Zonia and all the members are grateful to Kiva for the loan and for the confidence demonstrated in them.

Zonia is pictured standing with the green striped polo. She bids farewell with a promise to meet all of her goals.

In this group: Jacinta, Sofia, Zonia, Nimia, Jackeline
