María De Jesús
View original language description ↓
She started her business selling basic necessity products as a mini-mart 10 years ago with the goal of helping her husband with the household expenses, as these were starting to increase when their two children grew and were asked for a lot of materials for school. Being a stay-at-home mom, Maria de Jesus decided to do something that would make her money in addition to giving her the opportunity to use her time in a commercial activity.


Maria de Jesus is requesting a loan for US $925, which she is willing to pay within a period of 6 months. With this money, Maria will be able to improve the walls of her locale, which are made out of wood and are in very bad shape. Maria de Jesus wants to make them out of concrete so that the merchandise is not affected by the humidity sometimes brought by wood. With your help, Maria de Jesus will be able to support her children and renovate her locale for the benefit of her business.

Translated from Spanish by Eliana Colunga, Kiva volunteer.

Al ser ama de casa María de Jesús decidió hacer algo que le retribuyera dinero además de ocupar su tiempo libre en una actividad comercial.
