A loan of $200 helped to buy merchandise to start a small business selling clothes.


Rufina Felicita's story

Rufina is a fighter, she is 51, single and lives in San Vicente with her family.

She has two children who are her biggest pride and inspiration to keep getting ahead. For many years she has worked as a day laborer in the farms in the area. It has gone very well for her because she is a responsible, hard working and honest person and because over the years she has earned the respect and confidence from people.

Rufina is thankful to the Kiva lenders because with their support she has been able to buy merchandise to start a small business selling clothes.

This way she will have a higher income and will be able to improve the quality of life of her family.

Little by little she will fulfill her biggest dream: "to have her own business".
