Consuelo
View original language description ↓
Consuelo began her business to help out the mothers in her neighborhood, as most of them worked and it was difficult for them to take their children to school. For this reason she started the business and also to help herself financially.


She started with just one van for school transportation in her own neighborhood. With the income from that and her own efforts she expanded her business and now has another van. Now she has several schools to where she transports children, not only in her own neighborhood.


She needs a loan for US $1,000, which will be repaid in 6 months, to buy parts and for general maintenance work on the vehicles before school starts. She has faith that with Kiva´s support, she will be able to do this.


Translated from Spanish by Molly Puglisi, Kiva volunteer.



Consuelo inicio este negocio para beneficiar a las madres de familia de su colonia ya que pues la mayoría de ellas trabaja y les es difícil llevar a sus hijos a la escuela y por tal motivo inicio el negocio y también para ayudarse económicamente.


Empezó solamente con un transporte escolar para su misma colonia, con los ingresos, esfuerzos ha podido ampliar su negocio, ya que hoy cuenta con otro transporte escolar. Ahora tiene varias escuelas a donde va y lleva niños, ya no es únicamente la de su colonia.


Ella necesita de un crédito por US $1,000 que pagara a 6 meses para la compra de refacciones, mantenimiento general de las unidades para este regreso a clases, tiene la fe que con el apoyo de Kiva lo obtendrá.
