Estelvina De Los Ang
View original language description ↓
Mrs. Estelvina H. is 49 years old and married with 4 children. Because two of her children are independent and one is in college, Estelvina currently only takes care of one of her children, who is currently a senior in high school. Estelvina runs a small local store, as well as a fried-food stand in an effort to boost her income. As the local store is her principal business, her goal is to strengthen it because it is very small and lacks capital. Her biggest dreams are to increase the store's offerings and watch her children become professionals. Estelvina has been working in this store for 13 years, which has given her a way to support her family. She is counting on Kiva's support and yours to help her come out ahead.
