A loan of $2,750 helped a member working capital.

Carolina Group's story

The Carolina Group is represented by Cinthia Paola and consists of 13 members, 11 women and 2 men. They all know each other because they live in the same neighborhood. Most of them make their income from commercial activities such as clothing sales, a neighborhood grocery store, food sold by a street vendor, bread making, a cleaning service, and liquor sales. There are a lot of competent people in these fields, so the members have to find different ways to sell merchandise and earn a better income to support their families. This loan from Kiva partner Fundación Agrocapital will be used to buy merchandise and ingredients to compete in the commercial market. The members have worked with supportive groups before, so they know about the work and responsibilities necessary for each loan.

In this group: Cinthia Paola, Carmen Gladys, Edy, Edilberto*, Heidi, Marisela, Marisol, Mirian, Solange, Roma Patricia, Cristina, Maria Dolly
