A loan of $1,900 helped to make necessary repairs to her home.


Silvia's story

Silvia is a micro-entrepreneur and client of Kubo Financiero and this is her story: Silvia is 45 years old and has lived with her partner since she was 28. She doesn't have any economic dependents as her children no longer live with her. She has always liked to sell things and she has had her grocery business for 8 years. She very much likes the way that her business has grown. She began with something very small that didn't have refrigerators and had very few products. Today, she has a counter, refrigerator, slicer, and a variety of products. Silvia is requesting this loan to remodel and make necessary improvements to her house. Thanks to her hard work, Silvia has been able to make some improvements to her house such as putting in solid floors where before there was just plywood, and to furnish it. Her main goal is to continue remodeling her home.
