Ileana's story

Ileana is a 42 year old woman, married and the mother of three children who are her greatest source of motivation. With much effort over 12 years, she built a small general store, with the absolute support of her husband and daughter. She is a merchant, happy to have her own source of income, which she believes will continue despite the challenges she faces.

Ileana has come to the lenders of MiCrédito and KIVA to buy a freezer, 100 pounds of chicken, three quintals of sugar, medicines, perfume, underwear, deodorants, shampoo, three quintals of rice, and one quintal of cheese. In the near future, Ileana plans to obtain a vehicle to make the purchases for her store.
