A loan helped to buy and sell fuel and lubricants.


Carmensa's story

Carmensa is married and has two young children. She constantly fights to provide a better future for them.

Carmensa has a small business selling cosmetics, gasoline and lubricants (fuel). In her community there are not enough supplies nor gas stations. She took advantage of this opportunity to start her business. The area is pretty busy and the demand for this type of service is high.

This is her first loan with Kiva and Aldea Global. She requests the loan to buy fuel and lubricants, which she will sell to customers who need these products.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Matteo Modelli.


This loan is special because:

It is accompanied by financial education and provides borrowers access to preventative healthcare.
