Cruz De Mayo Group’s story

This is the “CRUZ DE MAYO” group, created many years ago by entrepreneurial people. Now, it is made up of 9 very responsible people who decided to continue working as a team to meet their objectives. It is represented by its president Guillermina, who has 4 children who are already adults. For some years, she has had a business selling desserts and fast food in the area surrounding her house. This is why she will invest the loan in buying tables and chairs that she needs to be able to better serve her customers. She is very happy and thankful to the Kiva investors for all of the support that they are giving her. In the group photo, Guillermina is standing in the middle of the rest of her friends, who are sitting.
