A loan of $6,500 helped a member to buy chairs and tables.


Union Progreso Group's story

The “UNION PROGRESO” communal bank is made up of hard-working, determined members who work in retail businesses. Carole is 33 years old and lives with her two dependent children.

Thanks to her own initiative, she has been selling fast food for the past four months. She also sells clothing. She will use the money from the loan to buy plastic tables and chairs. The group is grateful to the KIVA investors for the loan they are granting. Carole is the one pictured with her baby in her arms.

In this group: Maria Lourdes, Maria Felicita, Editha Mery, Cecilia, Lucy Rosmery, Carmen Rosa, Maria Cecilia, Carole Maribel, Eyda Constantina, Mariela Soledad, Milagros
