default New Kiva Loans Jan 2012

Post by Adrian on 24th February 2012, 2:29 pm

María Delmi
El Salvador Food | Food Production/Sales



A loan of $500 helps María Delmi to buy corn wholesale, firewood, lime and propane gas.


Repayment Term: 16 months (more info) Repayment Schedule: Monthly Pre-Disbursed: Jan 20, 2012 Listed Feb 24, 2012 Currency Exchange Loss: N/A Default Protection Not Covered


María Delmi is 43 years old and lives with her life partner and children in her own home. She has a tortilla business at home and is very well known in her town because she sells delicious tortillas, using top-quality ingredients and selling at low prices. In addition, her service is the fastest in the area. María is a woman who is committed to her work. She gets up very early as she knows that God helps those who get up early. She would like to stay ahead of the competition and perseverance is her biggest secret to growing her business. She is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL which will allow her to buy corn wholesale, firewood, lime, propane gas, etc. María Delmi hopes to be able to provide her family with a better quality of life.

Marcel Evènassè Jean
Benin Services | Sewing




Marcel Evènassè Jean, age 32, lives in Benin. He's married to a hairdresser named Hélène. He never attended school, but did learn sewing. The couple has two children, out of whom one attends school. In addition, they have another child in their care.

Marcel Evènassè Jean and his wife make sure together that the various household expenses are covered. To provide for himself, Marcel Evènassè Jean has been working as a tailor for about thirteen years. This business enables him to provide for himself and for his children's needs.

He would like to improve his sewing workshop's equipment by purchasing an embroidery machine. This will enable him to meet customer demand in an efficient way.

For this reason, Marcel Evènassè Jean is seeking a third loan from Kiva's partner, ALIDé. The first two loans were repaid without problems.

They sound like really worthwhile businesses. Thanks for sorting it, Adrian.
