Sembrando Esperanza Group's story

The "Sembrando Esperanza" group is made up of seven members who work offering services and performing various activities in the retail business. Elena is a 40-year old woman, single and mother of three children who attend school. She is the president of the group and, for many years, has been selling common reed, flowers and fruit. It is her mother who started selling common reed and now Elena supports her.

She used the loan to buy common reed, flowers and fruit, and her biggest dream is to finish the construction of her house. The group members are grateful to Kiva lenders for this loan.
