Maria Elena's story

Sra. Maria Elena is married and has two school-age children. She has a neighborhood store that she has managed out of her mother’s home, where she lives, for 22 years. Maria Elena also works as a school teacher and has time for both jobs. She is a hard worker and a long-time client of Emprender.

Maria Elena has demonstrated that she is very responsible with her payments. She participated in three loan cycles with a group and is now on her second individual loan. With this money, she will buy a variety of products to restock her store and provide better service to her customers. She is extremely grateful to Emprender and Kiva for trusting her by providing this loan.
