She’s hardworking and enterprising and her greatest wish is to provide her children with a better future who no doubt will be grateful for it someday. She’s kind, optimistic and always disposed to be better every day.
With much effort she’s succeeded in setting up a tortilla shop which is her source of income. She rises every day with the hope of increasing her little business a bit more to earn the profits she yearns for and above all so that her children should want for nothing. However, she does not have the necessary capital to do so which is why she approached Integral to request a loan to buy corn and supplies to make tortillas. She trusts in God that her life will soon have better prospects and to forge a prosperous future for her family.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of a pilot project Apoyo Integral is launching in conjunction with several local NGOs to support at-risk youth and their families with funding from Kiva. This loan product is tailored to young people who find themselves in high-risk situations because they are located in areas affected by extreme violence. Loans are combined with vocational, technical, and financial training to help these young people develop business ideas that will help them generate income, reintegrate into society, and support their dreams of being productive and contributing members of society.
Due to potential safety risks facing these youth, some of the loans are being disbursed to their parents in order to protect their identities. For the same reason, the faces of some Apoyo Integral borrowers may be blurred in photos. Apoyo Integral appreciates Kiva lenders' understanding of these challenges and encourages them to provide much-needed support to at-risk Salvadoran youth.
