For some time now, she has had a small stand making and selling typical snacks, cakes, nougets, enchiladas, and potato chips, among other items. She works every day and is very well known among the zone's inhabitants, thanks to her manner of attending to their preferences.
She wants to purchase a larger quantity of supplies and to sell more of her delicious snacks, but she lacks sufficient capital to do so. It is for this reason that she is requesting a loan through INTEGRAL, to buy corn, vegetables, meat, sugar, etc.
This young woman possesses a good credit record and can count on the satisfaction of having never done anything bad to anyone. She is grateful for the help she has been offered in the past.
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.
