A loan helped to buy cooking utensils and make improvements to her business so she can increase sales.


Angelica Maria's story

Angélica is an enterprising young Venezuelan woman of 18. She lives in the town of Esmeraldas with her parents and siblings. She runs a business selling juices and pastries, and for that reason is seeking a loan so she can grow her business by buying cooking utensils and electric appliances. Then she will be able to make a variety of products and improve the condition of her stall so she can provide a better service.

Angélica is very grateful for your help to improve her business which will lead to an improvement in her and her family's standard of living.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Jane A.


This loan is special because:

It focuses on the poorest one-fifth of the population with no access to financial services.
