A loan helped a member to improve the bathroom of her restaurant, to offer a better service to her customers.

Financiera Las Orquídeas Group's story

Jessica is 38 years old. She has three children of 19,14 and 5 years of age. Jessica has been selling food and drinks for more than eleven years and she takes care of her children.
Her biggest challenge was to confront the competition. Due to her strong loyalty, treatment, the quality and the good service that she offers, she always managed to hold her customers and make them always choose her.

She is requesting a loan through Kiva so that she can continue to improve her location with a better bathroom.
In her little location she counts on the help of a cook to prepare the meals and sell them in the evenings.

With her extra earnings she will invest in her dwelling and the education of her children at a higher level. Her dream is to expand her location and renovate her furniture for a better commodity and service for her customers. Due to that she will be able to offer her children a better education.

Jessica always tries to reach the goals that she set herself to show her children that all the efforts that she makes are for them, to improve from day to day and to have a better quality of life and cover the basic needs.
