Santos Victoria's story

46-year old Santos Victoria Q. D. R., her husband, and their three children live in Santa Tecla which is located in La Libertad department. Her husband is a farmer, along with their eldest son, and the two younger children are students.

Santos has a stall selling basic necessities such as toilet paper, soup, small sachets of shampoo, hair lotion, sauces, and cooking oil. The business is located San Juan Opico’s municipal market, also in La Libertad department. It is of great importance for Santos’ family as it provides much needed help to her husband’s efforts to support them all.

For this reason Santos is seeking a loan from Kiva partner Integral so that she can invest more money in the business. She wants to buy larger quantities of the products she already sells, as well as new products such as coffee, toothpaste, toothbrushes, washing powder etc. In this way she will earn more income and develop as a businesswoman. Santos is a responsible and hardworking woman, fully committed to the wellbeing of her family and with a great desire to get ahead in life.
