Lorena Michele's story

Mrs. Lorena is separated and has 2 school-aged children. The separation, she says, has been very difficult for her and for her 2 children but she knows how to forge ahead, in spite of all the problems. Now, her principal objectives are her children and her work.

Her business activity is selling clothes, underwear, shoes and perfumes by catalog, in various places and offices, an activity that is the principal source of income for her and her family.

The loan will be used to buy merchandise which she offers at a discount. This is why she is soliciting financing -- to augment her income.

Mrs. Lorena is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for their confidence in her and for providing the loan.
