Hijos De Grau Group's story

"Hijos de Grau" is a group made up of 6 members. Maria, 43 years old, is one of the members, and is married with three small children. She is new to the group after being invited to join by a friend. Her business is in the sale of beauty products and she started this business with the encouragement of her sister who works in the same field. She is grateful because her business is going well and she has many customers, of whom her main customers are neighbours, friends and family. With the loan she has requested, she wants to use the money to start selling used clothing. She hopes to be successful and so extend her business. Her dream for the future is to open a juice & smoothie bar. Maria would like to thank the investors in this Kiva loan which is very important for her and her group. In the photos she is the third person standing, wearing a black polo-shirt and short jeans. The attached photo belongs to Angel, the only male partner in the group.

In this group: Denissi Karina, Angel Alejandro, Fara Del Pilar, Katherine Melissa, Mirtha Rosalia, Maria Cristina
