Trabajando Unidos Group's story

The communal bank “Trabajando Unidos” (Working Together) consists of 5 enterprising and responsible members. This is the case of Leonidas, who is 44 years old, married, with 4 children two of whom are school age. Leonidas began by providing basic need items as she started her business. Today she also offers services to make telephone calls. She is happy since every day she continues to improve. The loan she seeks will be used to buy groceries, beverages, and candy. Leonidas' goal is to continue growing her business. The group "Trabajando Unidos" is grateful to the Kiva investors for the help they provide and promise to continue working well. Leonidas is standing, the second person from the right side in a purple shirt.
