Iris Yessica's story

Meet Iris Yessica!

Iris Yessica lives in the rural community of Rio Pavo, East Panama, a region known for being historically excluded from basic financial services.

She is a dedicated 22-year-old student that is finishing her agricultural studies diploma in a nearby institute. She is known for being very committed to her studies and entrepreneurship in her community.

Today, Iris Yessica is asking for her first Kiva loan to buy clothes in bulk to then sell them in her community. She counts on the support of her entrepreneurial brother, who owns a small supermarket and is also her business mentor. Iris Yessica is planning to sell some of the new clothes in her brother's supermarket and also to people in neighboring communities.

With the profits of this business venture, Iris Yessica is planning to buy her mother a house for the family.

Thank you for contributing to the growth of industrious entrepreneurs like Iris Yessica in rural Panama.
