Micaela Bastida Ii Group's story

This communal group, "Micaela Bastida II" is made up of nine enterprising people who bring a lot of creativity to their businesses. The featured borrower is Demesia. She is fifty-three years old, is married, and has five children. She has been making a living selling food during both the day and night for seven years. Demesia has built up a loyal customer base, allowing her to generate better profits in order to cover home expenses.

In the future, she would like to have her own stall where she could sell her foods and obtain even better economic profits. With the requested loan, she will invest in founding her business premises, which will allow her to move herself ahead.

Demesia and all the group members are grateful to Kiva. In the photo, Demesia is in the green sweater. She would like to close her message in saying that she will keep her promise to work towards all of her proposed goals.

In this group: Toribia, Hellen, Demesia, Marili, Loretta, Yrma, Liseth, Orfelinda, Ana Ysabel
