A loan helped a Latina business owner to increase the stock of jewelry products and store expansion in Oakland.

Ana's story

I am originally from Honduras and I came to California 7 years ago. I’m extremely proud of myself that I have able to become independent in such a short time.

A dream I have for the future is to bring my children to California as well since they are still in Honduras, I just want my whole family to be together. Last year my daughter came and now I’m waiting for my son. My overall goal for my life is to be independent and build a great life from the ground up.

The first Kiva loan that I received in 2019 allowed me to start this journey and now I want to achieve a new goal since I expanded my business.

This loan is special because:

It supports a female entrepreneur in expanding their business.
