Julia Estela's story

Ms. Julia Estela P. A. is a 46 year-old single mother who lives with her grown children in the Los Meléndez neighborhood. Her children work in different jobs that bring in their own income. Julia has a small store where she sells products for the home and for personal use, groceries, etc. She is requesting this loan to buy more merchandise for her business, in order to stimulate her monthly sales and allow her to earn more profits so that she can improve her living conditions.

This is not her first loan. Over the years that AFODENIC and Kiva lenders have supported her, her quality of life has become more prosperous. Her family says they are very happy with the positive changes they have seen in their lives.
