A loan of $4,000 helped a member to buy chicken, root vegetables, green vegetables, rice, and oil.


Mujeres Al Progreso Group's story

The Mujeres al Progreso group is comprised of eight male and female members who are very happy to be in their fourth cycle.

Andrea is forty-five years old, and is single with two children. For several years she has had a restaurant that she runs in part of her home; she offers both breakfast and lunch. At the same time, she also sells beauty products. Her greatest dream is to provide beer and carbonated beverages at the restaurant.

She will invest the loan in the purchase of supplies, including chicken, green vegetables, root vegetables, rice, and oil.

The entire group is grateful to the Kiva investors and for the loan. Andrea is the individual pictured in the upper right hand corner; she could not be present at this particular group meeting.

In this group: Marizola, Benjamina Gloria, Jessica, Vanessa Melani, Andrea Yolanda, Teodocio Marino, Milagros Ofelia, Juan Pablo
