Balcon Florido Group's story

The lending group “BALCON FLORIDO” is one of the longest-standing groups. It is made up of members who work in agriculture and cattle and as merchants. Idelfonza, 59, is married and has 5 grown children. She sells cheese on order to a loyal customer base as well as door to door to the general public. She will use the loan to buy more cheeses. Her greatest wish is to have a small store in her home.

The group is grateful to the Kiva lenders for the loans. Idelfonza is the first women on the left in a purple jacket.
