Ileana's story

Ileana is an enterprising woman who started out selling clothing as a street vendor. She saved until she was able to open a general store.

Ileana has worked with Aldea Global since 2019, and her finances have improved. With the profits from previous loans, she has been able to buy a house, invest in merchandise and invest in a fast food business.

Ileana is requesting a loan from Kiva and Aldea Global so she can expand the inventory in her general store. She will invest in rice, beans, sugar, soap and other household goods. Her shop is set up in a strategic sales area. Making this investment will allow Ileana to keep her business moving forward.
