A loan of $625 helped to buy a cooler, kitchen utensils and a new fryer.


Vicenta's story

Thank you for supporting Vicenta with her Kiva loan that she used to buy raw materials and supplies to make food items like arepas [Colombian grilled corn cakes], turnovers and stuffed potatoes. With this investment her production increased, she produced more profits that she used to make home improvements. Her business is better stocked, she sells more and her life is much more tranquil.

She’s very happy and says to her Kiva lenders: “Thanks for supporting me in my business; I’ve been in this business for many years and I’d never done as well as I’m doing now.” At present, she’s applying for a new Kiva loan to buy a cooler, kitchen utensils and a new fryer. With this investment her road to success is becoming clearer each time.
