Betzabeth's story

Betzabeth is a thirty year old, single, Venezuelan national. She currently lives in the city of Esmeraldas with her family.

For 10 years, Betzabeth has been dedicated to gastronomy. She has always been interested in preparing food and this has motivated her to start her own business, since her family is her main concern.

Betzabeth needs this loan which will be used to acquire missing furniture such as tables and chairs and to buy ingredients and more food provisions in order to offer better service to her customers. She will thus increase her capacity to serve the public.

Betzabeth would be very greateful to Kiva for this loan since it will enable her to better succeed in improving her financial stability and living conditions. She will also be able to help her family who are in great need of her support.
