27 De Agosto Group's story

The 27 D. Agosto (August 27th) group bank is a very dynamic group that holds its meetings in the neighborhood of the same name. The group has worked with AgroCapital for a good period of time now; they are currently on their third loan cycle and have not had any problems with late payments.

Most of the group members have small commercial operations and sell their wares in the Villa VerD. Market. Most sell food (fruit, vegetables, potatoes, prepared meals, bread, and sweets), though several sell clothing for adults and children, and one sells handicrafts. All of the group members have at least two years of experience with their respective businesses. Most plan to use their Kiva loans to expand their inventory.

27 D. Agosto's success has been thanks to the collaboration of all 14 of the group members, who are responsible people who know how to work in a team. The group knows what the group guarantee is, and never misses a payment at any of its meetings.
