A loan helped to buy supplies to stock her store.


Esmelda's story

Esmelda has worked in commerce for over 15 years. She owns a general store. Her best selling product is chicken. She counts on doing business with communities who can buy her product wholesale. This allows her to get the required income to resupply her inventory.

She is requesting a loan from Kiva's partner Aldea Global to buy supplies to meet her customer's demand. Having this loan will allow her to gain sufficient income to cover her household expenses.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Najoo Annette Wadia.


This loan is special because:

It is accompanied by financial education and provides borrowers access to preventative healthcare.
