A loan of $1,000 helped to make some repairs to her apartment.

Blanca Francisca's story

Ms. Blanca, age 62, has two grown children and works as a general vendor, selling various household items like sheets, comforters, and pillows. She goes to different markets and door-to-door to take orders and makes sales on credit. Ms. Blanca lives in her home in the May 1st district. This loan will be the first she has taken with Emprender [Kiva field partner]. She will use it to make some repairs to her apartment, as there are a lot of things in disrepair that she needs to fix up for her own comfort. Ms. Blanca does encounter some obstacles in her business due to the demand for new products and she will use some of this loan to better meet the needs of her customers by buying a wider variety of products. Ms. Blanco feels happy and grateful to Emprender for the support it has provided by granting her this loan.
