Ignacia Yolanda
View original language description ↓
Ignacia R. sells groceries such as oil, soap, pastas, detergents, brooms, shampoo, etc. She started her business 10 years ago in the market at the León bus station, with a small investment that she borrowed from a moneylender. Once she bought the first products, she worked hard to sell them and looked for a way to get out of debt and finish paying it off.

One of her needs is to invest in the purchase of groceries, and for this reason she has approached Ceprodel for loans (she has had 5 loans), which she invests directly in her business, and in this way she supports her home, which needs it so much.

Translated from Spanish by Molly Puglisi, Kiva volunteer.
