La Vecindad Del Cinco Group's story

This is a group composed of 6 enterprising and very creative people. These are the members of the “la Vecindad del Cinco” communal bank. Elsa is 42 years old and the mother of 3 children. She has worked for 6 years selling food in a small market (renting). Elsa tells us that she has come to have loyal clients which generate enough income to cover the household expenses. In the future she would like to have her own stand to sell food during the day and also at night and gain more revenues. With the loan she will invest in buying more products (rice, groceries, chairs, tables, cutlery, plates etc.) and be able to get ahead. At the same time Elsa and all the members are grateful to Kiva and Edaprospo for the loan and the confidence placed in them. Elsa stands out wearing her violet sweater and is the first person to the right. They say good-bye with the promise to fulfill all their proposed goals.

In this group: Martha, Ermanda, Elsa Marta, Eva Esperanza, Carmen Rosa , Beatriz Cristina
