Esperanza De Vida Con El Futuro Group's story

Elizabet, 37, is married and has two dependent children. The "Esperanza de Vida" group is made up of nine responsible and supportive members. Elizabet works selling and distributing cakes and soap. She is joining the group for the first time, on the recommendation of her neighbor, who is also a member of the group. Elizabet's wish is to have her own retail establishment. She asked for the loan to buy cakes and soap. The "Esperanza de Vida" group is grateful to the Kiva lenders for making this loan possible. Elizabet is the first one on the right, wearing a pink shirt and light-blue pants.
