Araceli Esperanza's story

Araceli Esperanza is a married adult from one of the towns in the north of the country, a zone noted for commerce, gold sales, cattle and others. She owns a beautiful grocery store that she’s succeeded in stocking little by little with loans she’s gotten. She sells basic home consumption staple goods like rice, sugar, beans, powdered milk, snacks, soft-drinks, coffee, seasoning, onions, tomatoes, eggs, juices, chicken, meat, sausages, cookies, detergents, shampoo, bread, soap as well as cosmetics and clothes, among others.

She starts her work day very early in the morning and ends quite late thereby offering better customer service. This loan’s objective is for working capital to buy household goods to have a variety of products handy to offer her customers. Araceli is very grateful for the support Kiva lenders give people of low economic resources.
