Angelica's story

Angelica Y. E. is a member of the Confianza (“Trust”) Village Bank. She is a 28-year-old single mother with one child. Angelica sells “emoliente,” a hot drink with curative properties. She works every morning and every night selling her emoliente on the street outside of a local inter-provincial transport company. She also has a small stand at the Alipio Ponce Academy, where she sells sweets. Angelica needs a loan of $275 to buy sweets and to fix her cart. Angelica dreams of owning her own home, of expanding her business, and of providing her son with a good education. Translated from Spanish by Cynthia McMurry, Kiva fellow.
