Mercedes's story

Mercedes lives under the anticrético modality (Anticretico is a transaction not available in the U.S. whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner loses the property to you) with her two children; she’s been separated from her husband for over 5 years.

She’s employed as a social worker but her salary is not very high. She also manufactures chocolates with two girl friends with whom she set up a micro business. They have a pending order to make chocolates for Mother’s Day and they need funds to buy ingredients (chocolate, sugar, aromatic oils, etc.) so that they can sustain the business and continue to generate earnings.

This is her first loan request from Impro. The social nature of the loan makes it eligible for transfer to Kiva for access to funds.
