Juventud Unida Group's story

The communal bank "Juventud Unida" is made up of 6 members who are very pleased to be entering into their 5th loan cycle. Florentina is 34 years old. She lives with a partner and has 2 children aged 15 and 9, who she is educating. Florentina works selling groceries and beverages from her store. She also sells cellular phone minutes. Her main desire is to expand her store so that she can build her house and give her children a professional education. She will invest this loan in her store, buying soft drinks and cellular recharges. This group is grateful to the Kiva lenders for this loan.
