With spirit and dedication she has a store where she sells staples, basic grains, sugar, soap, and other items. She is hardworking and very friendly when selling and this is why she has more customers every day as they prefer her for the quality and good prices and above all for her good service.
She has seen the necessity of a few more supplies for the store and she does not have the capital to do it and this is why she came to ask for a loan to permit her to buy more products such as basic grains, eggs, beverages, sweets, soap, etc. She has confidence in God that soon help will be provided and will not have to worry so much about meeting the household needs.
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.
