She lives in a family unit which is her main source of inspiration. For some time she has had a small grocery store in her home and thanks to the quality, the good prices and the service people prefer her and they have a dependable source for their purchases. She has been in the business a short time but she wants to continue fostering it. She wants to buy more supplies so she can increase the production and thus the sales, but she does not have enough capital to do it and this is why she is asking for a loan to permit her to buy corn, beans, pork rinds, cheese, vegetables and more.
She has a good credit history and has the satisfaction of knowing that she has never hurt anyone and is always responsible, and is thankful for the help she has been given and at the same time she has confidence in the hope that soon she will be able to offer a better life to 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.
