Virgen De Chapi De Yanamaqui Group's story

“Virgen de Chapi de Yanamaqui” is a group made up of entrepreneurial associates who seek to improve the wellbeing of their families.

Emeli is 34 years old and single, with 3 dependent children. She makes a living selling of sweets, food, sandwiches, and sodas at the kiosk of a school in her town. She will invest the loan in the purchasing of more sodas, sweets, and cooking supplies. Her biggest desire is to install a small grocery store in her household.

The group is thankful to the KIVA investors for the loan provided. Emeli is the second woman to the left, wearing a gray sweater.
