A loan of $500 helped to purchase hard and soft cheeses, as well as other supplies for the chicken sandwichs and shaved ice he sells.


Noé Reinaldo's story

Noe has a 6th grade education, is married, and has children who are in school. He and his wife sell shaved ice, cheese, and chicken sandwiches.

Noe started this business 16 years ago, after an uncle gave him the idea. He travels the city by motorcycle, selling his wares wherever he goes.

The funds from this loan will be invested in buying hard and soft cheeses, as well as other supplies for the shaved ice and chicken sandwiches he sells.

His dream is that his children can continue their studies.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Aleks Clark


This loan is special because:

It gives opportunity to families living in high risk areas of El Salvador.
