Kenia Iveth
The municipality of El Sauce is known for being a calm town, full of hard-working, honest people. This is the case with young Kenia Iveth, who lives in the Las Pilas region, eight kilometers from El Sauce. She is a young 24-year-old woman who is married with a young son. From the time she was very small, she was taught the love of work, which is why she started her own little street vending business.

She has been working in clothes and shoe sales for three years. She started her business with money given to her by her husband with the goal of generating her own income and helping with household expenses.

She is requesting this loan to buy pants, blouses, underwear, men's shirts, and shoes so she can offer them for sale with the goal of satisfying customer demand and thus generating a little more profits, which would be beneficial for the economic development of her household.

She is very grateful to Kiva and Ceprodel for the support they have offered her with these loans, because it's a way to increase the working capital of all small-business owners. She hopes and trusts in God that these good-hearted investors will continue lending money to people who need it in her country.
