A loan of $700 helped to buy a larger stove.


Pascuala's story

Pascuala lives in Santa Rita, El Torno municipality. She is married and has three children, one who is still of school age and two who are in university.

She sells prepared meals, lunches and a-la-carte dishes. Her husband works as a professional driver.

Her children being in university generates many expenses for her and her husband that would not be met if only one of them worked. For this reason, they must both work to contribute to household expenses in order to move their family forward. One of Pascuala's wishes is to see her children become professionals and to buy her own home.

She will use the funds to buy a larger stove to prepare her delicious meals.

Pascuala is a responsible, hard-working woman who is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the trust they have placed in her by granting the loan.
