Sayda Virginia
View original language description ↓
Three years ago, Sayda started selling ice cream and candy. Her husband was out of work at the time and could only find a job as a taxi driver, but his income was insufficient. Wanting to help with the household expenses, Sayda decided to start her business. Many children currently know about her establishment.

However, she does not have enough products to meet the children’s demands. For this reason, Sayda is requesting a loan of $475.00, which she is willing to repay back in 6 monthly installments, in order to purchase more products to offer to her customers. Furthermore, with her earnings, she will be able to move her family forward with the help of her husband.

Translated from Spanish by Elizabeth Casian, Kiva Volunteer.

Hace tres años que Sayda comenzó a vender helados y dulces. Puesto que su esposo se quedó sin trabajo y lo que pudo conseguir fue como taxista. Sin embargo como con lo que gana no es suficiente. Fue por lo que Sayda con la voluntad para ayudar en los gastos de su casa, fue que comenzó con el negocio. Actualmente muchos niños conocen el establecimiento.

Sin embargo no cuenta con mercancía suficiente que demandan los niños. Es por eso que está solicitando un crédito de US $475 que está dispuesta a pagarlos en un plazo de 6 meses y con este dinero Sayda podrá comprar más mercancía para ofrecerle a sus clientes. Además de que con las ganancias podrá sacar adelante a su familia con la ayuda de su esposo.
