María De La Luz
View original language description ↓
After taking a photography class, Maria de la Luz S. became interested in starting a very modest photography studio in her own home. Things in her home were not going so well, because her husband is a laborer and does not make enough money to support the expenses of their daughter and the household.


However, buying the photography materials on retail is very expensive for Maria, and as a result she is forced to charge higher prices for her work. This is why she is requesting a loan for US$1000, to be paid in a 6-month time frame. With this money, Maria will be able to buy materials wholesale and offer her photos at a lower price.

Translated from Spanish by Eliana Colunga, Kiva Volunteer



Después de haber tomado un curso de fotografía María de la Luz S., se interesó en poner un estudio fotográfico, muy modesto, en su casa. Puesto que las cosas en su casa no iban tan bien, porque el esposo quien es obrero, no gana lo suficiente para pagar los gastos de su hija y del hogar.


Sin embargo comprar los materiales a menudeo le sale muy caro a María, y a consecuencia tiene que dar los precios más altos. Por eso está solicitando un crédito de US $1000 para pagarlos en un plazo de seis meses y con este dinero María podrá comprar los materiales por mayoreo y dar a más bajo costo las fotografías.
