Unidos Para El Progreso Group's story

The "Unidos Para El Progreso" group is entering it's third cycle. The group is made up of 6 members, all with different, prosperous businesses.

Paola, one of its members, is a single mother of 2 children. She works selling grilled kebabs, steak and chicken. Her business is located in her home where she has a space with some tables and chairs for her customers. The loan she is seeking will be invested in the purchase of cabinets and other equipment to improve her business.

The group is very grateful for the Kiva lenders. Paola is the first woman on the left, dressed in gray. The adjacent picture is of Maritza.

In this group: Sonia Lastenia, Paola Del Rosario, Maritza Martina, Zuleana, Edmunda Victoria, Angela Janet
