Paula Isidora
View original language description ↓
Paula is from the Villa de Reconciliación neighborhood. She is 41 years-old and is married. Her husband supports her family working as a truck driver. They have three children, a 15 year-old, a 13 year-old, and a 7 month-old. It has been six years since AFODENIC began providing her with financial assistance to start a small grocery store. As with any business, sometimes sales are low, so she would like a loan to build a room for her children and to make home improvements. In the future she would like to make her home larger to improve her children’s lives.

Translated from Spanish by Joanna Silverman, Kiva Volunteer.
