Edith Elena's story

Edith is 60 years old and sells fruit popsicles, ice cubes, and phone calls. She lives in Soledad, and everyday receives customers from the area into her home, where she lives with her mother and daughter.

She works from 6:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., and believes this is the secret to staying in business and supporting herself. Edith considers herself to be an altruistic person. She likes to help people. She works for a foundation called Alfa y Omega, where because of her attitude and entrepreneurship she has been offered a house in a short time.

She has had difficulties, such as the separation from her spouse, and the sickness of her mother, but her vitality and energy are her greatest incentive to move forward. She is currently seeking her first Kiva loan to buy candies and snacks in order to generate new income. Support her in this new initiative.
