Cristina's story

Cristina is a widow. Her husband died a short while ago. This was a difficult time for her because she found herself alone. He was her only support because she only devoted herself to the housework. But, she knew how to get ahead for the family’s well-being. She has four children. She buys and sells comforters. She has also had a neighborhood store in her house for three years. She is in her second cycle, and she has shown herself to be very responsible with her payments. She alone supports her household. She has her own house. This loan is to buy merchandise to be able to stock her store. She is very hard-working and responsible. She always sees which business to work in when there is not enough money. With four children it is hard for her. But, Cristina is always optimistic about the well-being of her family. She is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the trust given in granting the loan.
