A loan of $700 helped to buy clothing.


Zulma's story

Zulma lives in Santa Rita, El Torno. She is a single mother of a son; she must be mother and father in her home and she is solely responsible for all household expenses. It has been difficult for her to get ahead alone but, despite being very young, she found the way to overcome the situation and she works hard for herself and her son. She wants to improve their quality of life and see her son grow up and become a responsible and self-assured adult. Zulma peddles clothing through the city's different neighborhoods. She has customers that place specific orders with her. She is a responsible, affectionate person with her son. The funds will be used to buy merchandise so that she can have a variety of stock available to meet the needs of her customers. She is grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the trust placed in her by granting the loan.
