A loan helped to buy a food processing machine to increase the products that she offers to her customers.


Eva María's story

Eva lives in the city of Ibarra. She is 22 years old. She is single and the mother of a beautiful daughter, who is her motivation for continuing ahead. She works in cleaning services. To increase her income, she sells empanadas.

Eva is applying for a loan because she wants to buy a food processing machine that will allow her to make empanadas de verde [green plantain empanadas]. This is going to help her to increase the products that she offers.

Eva's dream is to open various shops in different locations in the country.

Eva appreciates your support because it will help her to strengthen her business and be an independent entrepreneur.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Pam McMurry.


This loan is special because:

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