A loan of $400 helped to buy soft drinks, juices, and water.


Silveria's story

Sra. Silveria is 72 years old and has been a widow for 10 years. She has six children who are all married. Silveria has been selling soft drinks for three years.


She says that she started this business because she wanted to improve her quality of life and have good financial solvency. Silveria also wanted to start saving and securing her future. The loan she will receive will be invested in soft drinks, juices, and water so that her business will have a little more inventory.


One of Doña Silveria’s goals is to grow her business even more. She wants to build a shop where she can set up a soft drink repository and increase her earnings. Silveria is very grateful to FRAC and the Kiva lenders because of the overwhelming support they have offered. Thanks to the help she has received for her business, the life of her family has changed considerably.
