Francisca Ataide
View original language description ↓

Francisca began her business because she was short on money. At that time she did not have the money for expenses or food and one of her children was sick with kidney problems. She started the business 15 years ago with homemade food and when it went well she was offered a stand at a school. She accepted, and since then everything has worked wonderfully, and that is where she sells her food.


She needs a loan of $1,200, which she will repay over 6 months, in order to buy another stand. The stand she has is old and damaged and she needs a new one, as required by the Secretary of Public Education for the children’s hygiene.



Translated from Spanish by Laura Westin, Kiva volunteer.




Francisca inició el negocio por que no les alcanzaba el dinero, en aquel entonces la necesidad fue el no tener el dinero para los gastos por que ni para la comida tenían y uno de sus hijos estaba enfermo con problemas de riñón.
Comenzó hace 15 años con su negocio de comida casera, cuando le fue bien le ofrecieron una caseta escolar lo acepto y hasta ahora todo le funciona de maravilla, ya que es ahí donde vende sus comidas.


Ella necesita un préstamo por US $1,200 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar una caseta mas por que la que tiene además de antigua y dañada necesita una nueva ya que se lo exige la Secretaria de Educación Publica por higiene hacia los niños.
