A loan of $625 helped to buy ingredients to make rice cakes and to buy assorted supplies.

Enilda Del Carmen's story

Enilda used her previous Kiva loan to do many things: she bought raw materials, sold frozen goods, bought merchandise and a display case that she keeps well-stocked to attract customers to attain her dream of owning a store. She is currently getting ready once again to invest in ingredients to make rice cakes, merchandise she needs because the year’s last trimester brings many joyful families with more resources coming from end of year bonuses and allowances for employees and she knows that they are always willing to buy from her and even able to pay an initial deposit for her products. She says that she feels blessed by Kiva and the Fundación and hopes that they will continue supporting her micro business so that she can continue to expand and strengthen it, to improve her standard of living and to take her daughter Danniela (who appears in the photo) to the university helping her to become a successful person.
