Maria Antonia
María Antonieta can always count on financial support from her children. Her business is renting out three rooms. This income helps her to pay her creditors and for the most part she has used it to improve her home. The most recent improvement was installing sewage pipes, toilets, and baths. She needs this loan to build a room to increase her rental business and for this she needs to buy cement, sand, cinder blocks, iron, quarry stone, tie wire, boards, nails, and more. She is grateful for the support offered to her by AFODENIC and Kiva.
