Belky Jose's story

It's been 30 years since Belky decided to start her own business selling bread and sweets in order to cover her household expenses, since she is a single mother of two teenage girls.

Now, thanks to her own efforts, she is the owner of a convenience store, which enables her to earn money and pay the university costs of her daughters. This is very precious to her, that these young women can become professionals. She is a woman who is recognized in her community for her bravery, commitment, and dedication to her work.

Belky has knocked on the doors of Kiva in conjunction with MiCrèdito, with the confidence that she will be able to get a loan to buy medicines, alcohol, gloves, cleaning products, and personal hygiene products, as well as for purchasing rice, beans, oil, sugar, cheese, and snack foods.

In the near future, this lady plans to construct a new convenience store and be self-sufficient.
