Sagrada Familia. Group's story

Victoria is 51-years old, married and has four children, two of whom are still dependent. The “Sagrada Familia” (Sacred Family) communal bank is made up of 6 enthusiastic members who work hard each day to get ahead. Victoria has made her living selling groceries for more than 16 years. She feels proud, as thanks to her hard work she can continue supporting her children in their education, and she has improved her quality of life. This last loan is meant to be used to purchase flour, cooking oil, rice and sugar. Victoria's hope is to see her children fulfilled professionally, which is why she works so hard. The “Sagrada Familia” communal bank is grateful for the Kiva lenders and the help they give. In the above photograph, Victoria is second from the left and wearing a gray jacket.
