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

A loan helped to buy inventory for her store.

Blanca's story

Blanca is married and has three children who attend school. She has worked with the loans from Aldea Global before, but this is the first time she is requesting one through Kiva. Blanca will use the funds to restock her grocery store.

She is a merchant, but she also sells clothes and raises and fattens pigs. With the income from selling pigs, she and her husband were able to buy a solar panel since there is no electricity in her community.

Blanca has gradually been able to improve her standard of living. She is a woman who is always dedicated to her work.
