Elvira's story

Elvira W. has been a client of Kiva partner Fundacion Paraguaya for three years, standing out by making her payments well. She is a single mother, which is why she works doubly hard as the head of household. She has no other income to pay for her home's expenses.

She began her business of buying and selling 10 years ago, selling, door to door, clothes for various occasions until she earned a little bit of money to set herself up in her own location, where she has been until now, relying on a wide stock of merchandise. This allows her to be optimistic about the end of the year, when there are more expected sales.
