A loan of $1,775 helped a member to buy merchandise for her store.


Las Poderosas De Ventanilla Alta Group's story

Yanina is one of the members of the Communal Bank "Las Poderosas de Ventanilla Alta". She is 30 years old, married, and has three children. Although her husband works as a laborer, there is often times not enough money. For this reason, she decided to help him by working. Yanina started her own business two years ago. She has a grocery store and works each day to serve her best customers, which include her neighbors who visit daily in order to make purchases.

The money from her loan will be used to acquire products for her store. Thanks to these funds, she will have the peace of mind that she needs to continue working in order to support her family. Yanina wants to keep growing and would like to open another store going forward that offers the same products. On behalf of herself and the rest of her Communal Bank, she would like to thank the Kiva lenders for this loan. In the photo, Yanina is the last person on the row wearing a floral skirt.
