A loan of $2,475 helped a member to buy summer sheets and pajamas.


Virgen De La Puerta Group's story

The members of the communal bank “Virgen de la Puerta” are happy because they’ve completed their 11th loan cycle. Juliana is 55 years old. She’s single with three grown children and one in school. She’s been selling household utensils and bedroom accessories for 36 years. In years past she did domestic labor. This was how she could be both mother and father to her son. She will invest this loan in the purchase of bedroom accessories like sheets for summer and pajamas for children and adults. Her greater goal is to buy a stand where she can sell her products. The group is very grateful for the Kiva lenders for the loan they’ve offered. Juliana is in the middle of the people who are standing and wearing purple sweater dress.

In this group: Gudelia, Juliana Corsina, Milagros, Eileen Ana, Maria Rita, Juan Carlos*, Dominga Isabel, Anne Ysabel
