Angelica Maria
View original language description ↓

Angélica started her business one year ago. First, she sold clothing she no longer used and later, since she did well, she started selling in the markets. Due to the financial need in her home, she had to work to help her husband.

She needs a loan in the amount of US $500, which she will repay in 6 months, to purchase a structure and canvas to set up a stand. This way, she will be able to keep the business open for longer hours in the markets, and open earlier as well since she will not be directly under the sun.

Translated from Spanish by Evelyn Garcia, Kiva Volunteer.

Angélica inicio su negocio hace 1 año primero vendiendo ropa que ya no ocupaba y después como le fue bien empezó a vender en los mercados, ante la necesidad económica en su casa ella tenia que trabajar para ayudar a su esposo.

Ella necesita un préstamo por US $500 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar una estructura y la lona para instalar un puesto y así va a poder quedarse mas tarde en los mercados e iniciar más temprano porque ya no estará directamente bajo el sol.
