Sonia Griselda’s story

Sonia, 37 years old, is a single mother. She lives in her own house with her two children. She has a small business selling food, located in her home, which she has had for the past two years. With the money she makes, she is able to pay for some of her household costs. She is requesting a loan to buy a thermal table so she can keep her food out on display. In this way she can have more clients and make a better income.

More about this loan

This loan is part of Apoyo integral´s efforts to support single mothers and provide access to credit in El Salvador. More than 20% of kids in El Salvador below 5 years old are from this type of households, where single mothers are the only source of income for the household and face bigger challenges than other segments of the population. By supporting this loan you are giving single mothers, widows, divorced women and many other vulnerable women the chance to get the money they need to pursue their goals.

About Apoyo Integral:

Apoyo Integral (Apoyo) is a nonprofit organization offering financial products that enable clients to increase their working capital, purchase fixed assets, buy and remodel homes, expand agricultural business and more. The organization’s target group is businessmen and women who have already established their businesses but need financial support to strengthen or expand them.

Like Kiva, Apoyo is committed to empowering women involved in business activities in rural areas. Kiva lenders’ funds will be used to expand these services to an even greater number of poor clients in rural areas.
