Evelia Francisca's story

Doña Evelia, age 42, is a humble merchant and a Kiva client. She is the owner of a grocery store. Evelia is very grateful for her first loan because it enabled her to invest in her business by purchasing more fruits, vegetables, and basic grains. This allowed her to increase her earnings.

For this reason, she is now requesting her second loan so that she can buy sodas, sugar, rice, beans, oil, meat, chicken, pineapple, melons, soap, and other products. By acquiring more products for her store, she hopes to attract more customers in order keep her business growing each day. Her future plans include improving her family’s quality of life so that they can live decently.
