A loan of $1,000 helps to buy tables, chairs, forks, and a freezer.


Elsa Argentina's story

Elsa is a woman who, for two consecutive years, has made a living selling ice, food, and soda from a space in her home. In her fundamental and valuable source of income, she has the unconditional support of her family. She is a merchant who has the commitment and desire to get her two children ahead in life because her partner has died.

Elsa, 45 years old, has knocked on the doors of MiCredito and Kiva with the hope of getting a loan to buy tables, chairs, forks, and a freezer in order to furnish her business and to draw her customers' attention. Elsa has a short-term goal of converting her small shop into a magnificent cafeteria.
