A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase ingredients to make new products and make updates to her kitchen.


Estevana Del Socorro's story

Estevana invested her last Kiva loan in the purchase of a heated display case and ingredients to prepare fried snacks such as rellenas, deditos, arepuelas, and empanadas carimañolas (a fried product prepared with yucca dough and meat stuffing) that she sold easily. Her business currently has a better image and she feels very happy. She is requesting this new loan because she needs to prepare herself for the holidays at the end of the year since they are a time of increased rotation and sales of her products. She will use the loan to purchase ingredients to prepare food and make updates to her kitchen so that she can improve the productive space in which she can work since she usually spends most of the day there making food. Her business generates income for the well-being of her household.
