View original language description ↓

Thanks to the support her parents provided her, Aidee was able to school and raise her daughters after her husband left them, he not wanting to support their little girls. She set up a small store near the central plaza in her town, and the business earned enough income to cover the household expenses. The room she rents to carry on her sales needs many upgrades and this would be detrimental to the family's finances, ultimately depriving her daughters. Aidee is requesting a loan so that she might invest the funds in the purchase of materials and needed products for her business and to relocate the business to her own house, avoiding the large rent payments.

Translated from Spanish by Erika Lindig, Kiva Volunteer.

Gracias al apoyo de sus padres quienes le brindaron los recursos necesarios para que Aidee pueda criar y educar a sus hijas después de sufrir el abandono de su pareja, quien no quiso responsabilizarse de sus pequeñas niñas, instaló una pequeña tienda cerca de la plaza de su localidad, negocio que le brinda ingresos necesarios para solventar los gastos de su hogar, pero el local es alquilado y para mantener sus ventas y ganancias tiene que realizar diversos ajustes económicos en su canasta familiar perjudicando el bienestar de sus hijas. Por ello Aidee solicita un préstamo con el objetivo de invertirlos en la compra de mercadería y productos necesarios para su negocio y la mudanza a su propio domicilio a fin de dejar de pagar las cuantiosas rentas del local.
