A loan of $650 helped to buy a display case and pay for remodeling expenses.

Alejandrina Bernardina's story

This is Sra. Alejandrina’s second loan. She sells beauty products from her home every day in order to help her family. In addition, her husband is a responsible gentleman who currently is employed as a construction worker. This has enabled them to move forward over the course of the past few years.

Alejandrina has a consultation business where she meets an average of 20 people a day. Thanks to her experience, she was able to start this business. Through her own initiative, Alejandrina was able to achieve many of the things that she set out to do, such as helping her four children get ahead.

With the assistance of the Kiva lenders, she will be able to buy a display case and also remodel a new space for her consultation business. As a result of this help, she will increase her income and the extra money will enable her to pay for her children’s education. Her children, ages 22 and 17, are in the process of finishing their higher education.
