Mayra Del Carmen
View original language description ↓
Ms. Mayra C. is a single mother of 3 underage children. It has cost her a great deal to get ahead in life, and she has made many sacrifices in order to be able to start a business in her home. She says that with the help of God, however, she has been able to move forward, and now she has a mini market. Ms. C. would like to offer her children more comfort, which is why she would like to invest in the purchase of grains, beans, and perishable goods in order to boost sales, thus allowing her to save enough money for her biggest aspiration for the moment: renovating her house.

Translated from Spanish by Elizabeth Casian, Kiva Volunteer.

Doña Mayra es madre soltera y tiene 3 niños menores de edad. Le ha costado mucho poder salir adelante y ha tenido que sacrificar mucho para poder empezar un negocio de ventas de productos varios en su casa, pero ella dice que con la ayuda de Dios ha podido salir adelante y hoy en día su negocio ya es una pequeña tienda. Doña Mayra quiere otorgarle mejor comodidad a sus pequeños, por lo que desea invertir en la compra de granos básicos y productos perecederos para aumentar las ventas de su tienda, para así poder comenzar a ahorrar y poder mejorar la construcción de su casa que por el momento es su mayor aspiración.
