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

A loan helped me to buy new materials and renovate old equipment.

Erika's story

My name is Erika and I was born in El Salvador. I am the third of six children and was born to an alcoholic father and grew up physically and emotionally abused in a dysfunctional home. At age 18, I decided to come to California with the help of my sister who had been here for 16 years. I am the single mother of two beautiful children. I would like a loan from Kiva to grow my small cleaning business and help other women in situations like mine. My greatest dream is to grow my business and help other women start their businesses.
