Esmeralda De La Cruz
View original language description ↓
Esmeralda started selling food to her friends and neighbors five years ago. A divorce forced her to care for her two children, now 11 and 9 years old and in school, on her own, which is why she started the business. With time things have improved.


Now she needs a $775 loan, which she plans to repay in six months, to purchase of chairs, tables and a new stove because the old one is worn down, so she provide a better service to her customers.

Translated from Spanish by Marty Greenstein, Kiva Volunteer


Esmeralda empezó hace 5 años vendiendo comida entre sus vecinas y amigos, ya que después de su divorcio tenia que mantener a sus dos hijos, que actualmente tienen 11 y 9 años y son estudiantes, por lo que emprendió este negocio. Con el tiempo le ha ido bien.


Ahora necesita un crédito por US $775 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar mesas y sillas para brindar un mejor servicio a sus comensales y una estufa nueva por que la anterior estaba muy deteriorada
