María De La Cruz
View original language description ↓
After her husband retired and his pension did not cover basic needs, María de la Cruz began to sell a very modest quantity of food products in order to earn income for family expenses. Unfortunately she was recently widowed, and after swallowing that bitter pill she decided to put herself to work and today she is asking for your help in order to buy merchandise and thus maintain her business.


María de la Cruz needs $250, which she will repay in four months, in order to supply her grocery store. Many thanks for supporting María. She has a great desire to move forward.

Translated from Spanish by Debra Faszer-McMahon, Kiva Volunteer.


Después de que su esposo se jubiló y la pensión que les daban no les alcanzaba para los gastos indispensables, María de la Cruz comenzó por vender una muy módica cantidad de productos de abarrotes, para poder sacar para los gastos que tenían, desgraciadamente enviudó hace poco, y después de un amargo trago de la vida decidió ponerse a trabajar y hoy está solicitando de tu ayuda para poder comprar mercancía y así mantener el negocio.


María de la Cruz necesita US $250 para pagarlos en un plazo de cuatro meses y así poder surtir su puesto de abarrotes. Muchas gracias por apoyar a María, ella tiene grandes deseos de salir adelante.
