A loan of $425 helped to buy groceries.


Arlen Maria's story

Arlen is a resident of the town of Concepcion in the community called San Juan. Along with her husband, her plan for the future is to be able to finish building her house and to improve her living conditions. Her husband helps her with the household expenses as he works for himself and she has a grocery store in their house. She will use this loan to increase her inventory a little as her customers are asking her for more products every day. For this reason she will buy: rice, oil, beans, corn, dairy products, meat, candy, etc. With this investment, she will be able to make better profits and help her husband. She is grateful for the support that Afodenic and Kiva have offered her.
