Dear Kiva Lender,
Kiva facilitates loans to more than 4,000 borrowers
every week, but since 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans we rely on donations from supporters like you to continue this important work.
If every Kiva lender seeing this banner pitched in $25 for our Donation Drive, we'd hit our goal of $600,000 by Dec 31!
Thanks for your continuing partnership in making the world a fairer place.
Maria is a very hard-working and enterprising woman. Thanks to her parents’ support, she succeeded in graduating in hotel management, which is proving itself to be very helpful to administer her own business, a small restaurant she opened a few years ago aiming to boost her selling and so succeeding in sustaining her children. She even invested in a small general store, but the business didn’t go much far because of the low selling that did not produced the expected gains. For this she decided to invest more in the selling of meals.
She will use the loan she is requesting to buy meat, chicken, dairy products, vegetables, fruit for her fruit juices, bread and other products in order to prepare a good number of sandwiches for an upcoming national police celebration: she has been asked to be in charge of the event and to be responsible for the preparation of meals and beverages, but she does not wish to use part of the monthly amount she puts aside to buy groceries for the restaurant because she is already facing problems there every day. Investing in this event will mean good money, and this will help her cover her expenses.
Doña Maria es una mujer trabajadora y muy esforzada, gracias al apoyo de sus padres logro recibirse en administración hotelera lo que ahora le es de gran ayuda para administrar su propio negocio un pequeño restaurante el cual comenzó hace varios años, con el objetivo de crecer en ventas y lograr poder apoyar a sus hijos. También invirtió en una pequeña pulpería que por estar las ventas bajas no trascendió, ya que no le genero ganancias debidas. Lo que decide invertir más en la comida.
Con este financiamiento quiere invertir en comprar carnes, pollo, lácteos, verduras, frutas para hacer jugo, pan y otros para poder hacer muchos bocadillos para una celebración de la policía nacional, el cual estará encargada del evento en donde preparara la comida y bebida, y no desea tomar de las compras de alimentos del mes del restaurante ya que cuenta cada día con un rol. Con la inversión de este evento serán buenas las ganancias lo que hará posible cubrir sus gastos.
