A loan of $200 helped to purchase natural health products to sell.

Estela's story

Estela is a 51-year-old hardworking and modest woman who lives with her daughter Milagros in a home she has rented for three years. Before having the economic stability she has today, Estela had many obstacles in her path, and she says this led her to turn to God and follow His lead. She is devout and reads the Bible a lot. That is how one of the members of the community bank invited her to join the group and request a loan to help her selling natural products via catalog. Estela has been working in this trade for 16 years as one of the top sellers in her area. She says she herself uses the nutrition and health products and now has a better quality of life. "I myself am a reflection of the effectiveness of my products," she says. As a hardworking woman, she also works in farming as a secondary source of income. She belongs to the "La Rosa De Paltarumi" community bank and this is her first loan with Kiva partner MFP. She feels very satisfied to be able to further develop her activities with the support of all of you, and she promises to make her payments on time since she has always been a hardworking and honest woman. Estela plans to use the loan to purchase natural health products to sell.
