A loan of $3,175 helped a member to buy clothes to sell.

Lider De Defensores Group's story

Lilia is 41 years old and married. She has three children, but only the oldest one is working while the others are in school.

Lilia is a member of the Communal Bank "Lider de Defensores". In order to be part of this group, she was encouraged to start her own business. She is pleased to be selling clothes because her business has gradually increased. At the moment, her sales have improved, so she has more income to help her family.

Her loan will be invested in the purchase of clothing for the new season. Her greatest wish in life is to have a location where she can open a clothing store. She currently delivers the completed orders.

The group is grateful to the Kiva lenders for this loan. In the photo, Lilia is standing on the far left wearing a black sweater and jeans.

In this group: Nazario, Carmen Raquel, Lilia Magaly, Socorro, Maria Artemia, Alfreda Manuela, Dora Elsa
