Estefani Yareth's story

Estefani is 21, single, and has no children. She lives with and cares for her parents since she is the youngest of six siblings. She has been running a grocery store for two years. She says she began this small business because she wanted to have a way to support her parents, cover expenses and have a better lifestyle. She plans to use the loan to buy more merchandise such as milk, softdrinks, oil, beans, rice, sugar, cookies, toilet tissue, soap, etc., so her store is well-stocked. She is convinced that one of her greatest dreams can become reality, and that is for her store to grow. She wants to expand the current location so she can add more product variety. This will increase and improve her income so she can continue to support her parents. Estefani is very grateful to the Kiva lenders for this great support, especially for the confidence shown in her, because this help has improved the business and the family's lifestyle.
