A loan of $3,075 helped a member to buy grocery items.


Las Amistosas Group's story

Marianella is the “Las Amistosas” (Friendly Ones) group treasurer. She’s 39-years-old and has a 14-year-old son. Marianella works as a merchant in a local market where she has a stand where she sells all sorts of vegetables and basic staple goods. Her work makes it possible for her to cover her son’s expenses, above all his schooling.

She will be able to improve her business with the requested loan purchasing grocery items. In future, she’d like her business to be better-stocked and to be able to supply more customers.

The group thanks Kiva lenders for providing this loan that will help in their businesses. Marianella appears in the photo wearing a brown sweater; she’s fifth on the left.
