A loan of $1,500 helped to buy basic necessities and other items for her store.


Arely Del Socorro's story

Arely is an enterprising woman who works as a merchant, has had the blessing of her store for ten years already. Arely is happy about the trust placed in her by AFODENIC and Kiva, which have been her driving force for giving the best to her young son who is still in secondary school.

Even though she has the moral and financial support of her husband, her desire is to continue expanding her business, which is her main source of income. This is the reason for this new loan, which she will invest in buying the following products: basic necessities (rice, beans, oil, corn), cosmetics, pharmaceutical products, sweets, school supplies, clothing, and firewood, among others.

Her plan for the future is to convert her store into a big general store and continue making improvements on her home with the profits.
