I made a Kiva loan today to the first listing I saw, it was just perfect - Guatemalan women (one named Julia), from a remote area, wearing traditional garb. Corazon de Oro I Group is from a town called El Jaibalito located on the shores of Atitlan Lake. El Jaibalito is a small town located on a very steep hill. Almost all homes are located on the mountain slope. This small town is not connected to other neighboring towns by any roads due to the mountainous terrain and the volcanoes, which make it difficult to build a road. You can only reach the town by boat.
