Salome's story

Salome lives in the town of La Guardia in the Monte Alto neighborhood. Her main activity is selling tobacco and other products, depending on the season. She will also undertake a business selling groceries, which will be in her house. She has to do different activities to increase the income for her family. She is a single mother with three children to support. The father of her children does not help enough to support them. That is the reason she is asking our institution for a loan. It is very difficult to have her own capital in order to work on her own. She will use the money from the loan to buy groceries to be able to sell in her new store. That way she will be able to increase her working capital. She is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the confidence given in granting the loan.
