Lorena Esperanza's story

Doña Lorena has been working in the collection department of an office for 3 years. She has two children, one of them studying at university and the other attending secondary school, so she works to cover all her household expenses. She also has her own business of apartment rentals and plans to use this new loan to make improvements in the apartments and provide a better service to her clients. She needs to buy blocks, cement, iron and sand to make the concrete walls (now made of wood), and ceramic, ceiling materials and zinc layers to change the ceilings. All of this is possible thanks to the support of her husband, who is self-employed and works in construction. This support allows her to repay her loans, for which she's very grateful to the financial institution and Kiva.
