Ebenezer Group's story

The Ebenezer communal bank is a group made up of seven enterprising people with a great deal of creativity in business.

Señora Ruth is 51 years old and married with three children. Ruth has had a small rented grocery store for about nine years. Ruth, with the help of her family, has figured out how to make a living. She has also managed to win the loyalty of her customers, which has generated earnings that allow her to cover her household costs. In the future, she would like to own her own shop where she could sell her products (sugar, coffee, milk, rice, etc.).

With the loan granted, Ruth will invest in the purchase of more products so that she can continue satisfying her customers' needs and thus be able to support herself. She and all the members are grateful to Kiva for the loan granted, and for the trust that has been placed in them.

Señora Ruth can be recognized by her light green shirt. She concludes with the promise that she will fulfill all her stated objectives.

In this group: Nelly, Elisea*, Luzelvaris Maria Elena, Adrian, Luis Rafael, Rosa Alejandrina , Ruth Gladys
