Jamileth Romina's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to adapt her business and to buy utensils for her restaurant.

Jamileth Romina's story

Jamileth is 20 years old and has lived all her life in the small village of Muisne, which is located on the coast of Ecuador, in the province of Esmeraldas.

She belongs to a group of entrepreneurial women in Muisne. She has a small business selling "encebollados" [a traditional Ecuadoran soup prepared with albacore, yucca, onion, tomatoes, cilantro, and seasonings] in the village.

She will use the loan to adapt her business and to buy utensils for the restaurant.

Jamileth is very grateful for Kiva because of the great help that it provides for her business. In the future, she hopes that her business grows enough so that she will be able to begin her higher-level education.
