Zoila's story

Zoila is from San Martin Jilotepeque. She is 47 years old, a widow, and a mother to three daughters. For more than 11 years Zoila has been making a living doing embroidery and knitting typical products. With this work, she has earned an income to support her family. She has a secondary job raising chickens. Zoila's dream is to help her daughters get ahead and to provide them with an education. This is Zoila's second Kiva loan. She was very punctual with her repayments on the first loan and during the first year she was only late once, by three days. Zoila thanks Fape and Kiva for the support being provided. She is applying for this loan to buy material and threads, and to buy chicken feed.
