Patricia Yanet's story

Patricia is a determined woman, fighter of a thousand battles, who lives in the municipality of Sonson. Currently she works at her business selling wholesale textile products, a business that was born from economic need and it is thanks to her effort and the support of her relatives that she has gotten ahead and overcome adversities.

Now she continues working, fighting to grow, create jobs, and hopes to achieve her goals and the most important is to earn money in an honest way. That is why she comes to the Kiva community requesting a loan to buy various wholesale meats, seasonings, corn, disposables, and gas. Patricia is the mother of two children. She wants to pay for their education and someday buy a home.
