Hilda's story

Hilda sells school materials in her bookstore located alongside a neighborhood school. This activity enables her to help her husband with household costs. Her family includes her husband and 2 children, both still school-age. Hilda has long been very well known in her neighborhood, since her bookstore is the only one in the area. The loan will be used to purchase school materials, including notebooks, paper, ball-point pens, hole punchers, staplers, quality paste-board, calendar books, etc. She has many customers. We can also state that she is very responsible with her obligations and very hardworking. For this reason, she was recommended to Kiva. Hilda is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for their confidence in granting her a loan.
