A loan of $3,400 helped a member to buy footwear and underwear.


Esfuerzo Es Exito Group's story

Angelica, 32, lives with her partner and her three children who all depend on her. She sells shoes, slippers, pyjamas and underwear through catalogues, an activity she has been doing for two years now. She used to offer a daily cleaning service.

She will invest the loan in buying more footwear and underwear. Her ultimate dream is to have a stand where she can sell her goods.

She also works as a secretary for the group "Esfuerzo es Exito". The group are grateful to the Kiva lenders for the help they offer.
