A loan of $800 helped to purchase winter clothing and other products.


Elena Petrona's story

Elena lives in the town of Primero de Mayo with her husband. They live in her mother's house. She works selling clothing and cosmetics. She offers her customers the option of paying in cash or on credit. Her husband is an independent consultant.

She is requesting this loan to increase her working capital with the purchase of winter clothing. She has many orders for clothing and cosmetics because she has increased her customer base. Her last loan was very successful and now she wants to sell other products, but for now she is doing very well.

Elena's dream is to own her own house, and the loans she is receiving from Emprender and Kiva are helping her reach this goal.
