Maria works on her beauty product selling business with a lot of enthusiasm. She works around 8 hours a day and she can serve up to 10 customers a day. She believes that her business does well because she's very charismatic and most of all because she's very very well-known among customers.
Maria is very thankful to Kiva lenders, because thanks to their help she will be able to purchase a washing machine and a television for her home. With this improvement, she will be able to improve her family's living conditions, since they didn't have these appliances. They are above all for her son's convenience.
