Dúo Abril Group's story

This Kiva duo is represented by Ileana Guadalupe. She is a married mother of 5 children. She started her business more than 11 years ago.

Ileana Guadalupe started the business with very little capital, but thanks to the help that Kiva and the FAPE foundation have given her, her business is much better and her income has improved. She sells all types of school supplies wholesale and retail. Her business is a school and office supplies and miscellaneous store. She is asking the FAPE foundation for a new loan to buy merchandise like notebooks, pencils, school supplies, books, etc. She wants to take advantage of the end of the year season to stock her business because prices are low. Her goal is to make her business a lot bigger to generate bigger and better income.
