Yesica Yamileth's story

Yésica is 26 years old. She takes care of the household chores and she sells snacks such as french fries, meat pies, tamales, and enchiladas. She already has 4 years experience in the business. Besides that she sells meals and on Wednesdays she sells tripe soup.

She needs the loan to buy supplies for the sale of breakfasts, lunches, and snacks. She has paid off the previous 2 loans she received from Kiva and she was able to invest in her business.

She has plans to continue improving her business as she has more clients and wants to open a more suitable place to serve them.
