A loan of $425 helped purchase merchandise for her convenience store.


Petrona Estelbina's story

Petrona P. is a 44-year-old woman who makes a living running her own convenience store out of her home in the Nagarote area of the city of León. In spite of facing great economic difficulties, Petrona has been able to make headway thanks the support she's received from Kiva partner Ceprodel in obtaining loans to allow her to acquire merchandise for her store. With the current loan she's requesting, she plans to purchase more products to offer in her store, and in this way continue providing for her household.
