A loan of $1,000 helps to purchase rice, beans, oil, sugar, cheese, and chicken.


Silvia Vanessa's story

Silvia is a young woman, 26 years old, who has, from her higher education, the profession of mid-level technician in chemistry. However, as she is the only breadwinner in her family, she decided to make her own source of income. At this time, she is the owner of a convenience store and also works selling fruits and chicken, where she has the unconditional support of her parents. She has two seasons of experience in this meaningful business.

This worthy young woman already has previous experience with the financing from Kiva and MiCrédito, through which she purchased sweets, rice, coffee, candies, and beans. Very happy for having increased her business, once again she has come for the loans from these two organizations to purchase rice, beans, oil, sugar, cheese, and chicken.

In the not-too-distant future, Silvia has as a mission to make her store into a distributor.
