Damaris Yasmin
View original language description ↓
Damaris is married and has two small children, ages 3 and 7. She began her store selling stationery and novelty items two years ago when she had stopped working, and her husband's salary no longer covered their expenses. She opened the stationery store in a small location her mother loaned her and, a little at a time, she has been improving it thanks to the earnings she has obtained.

She needs a loan for $600 that she will repay in 6 months to remodel her shop. With your support, she will come out ahead.

Translated from Spanish by Shannon Skoglund, Kiva volunteer.
