Maria
María, 57, is an admirable woman. She lives together with her three children and three grandchildren in a house she bought 20 years ago. Six years ago, María became a widow. Since then she has had difficult times, such as having to take care on her own of her handicapped daughter, who cannot walk. However, this motivates her to work harder and she does in order to get ahead with her business and improve her financial situation.

María owns a restaurant located in a square close to where she lives. There, tourists and locals visit her frequently, looking for her delicious foods. Since María comes from the countryside, she also grows corn and potatoes in large quantities. She has to rent some land because she does not own any.

This is María’s third loan with Kiva. She feels grateful for the financial help she has received. She promises to pay the installments on time. With the 2,500 soles [PEN], María will buy ingredients such as different types of meat, vegetables, condiments and some utensils for her business.

María, de 57 años es una mujer admirable. Vive en compañía de sus 3 hijos y 3 nietos; en la casa que compró hace 20 años. Hace 6 años enviudó y esto trajo muchas dificultades, una de ellas es cuidar de su hija mayor que es minusválida, pues no puede caminar, pero esto la motiva mucho más y trabaja con ahínco para seguir con su negocio propio y de esa manera solventar su economía. María tiene un restaurante en la plaza de su zona, ahí los turistas y la población la visitan con frecuencia, pues saben de la exquisita sazón de María. Pero como ella es una mujer del campo, también siembra maíz y papa en grandes cantidades, los cuales realiza en terrenos agrícolas alquilados, pues no cuenta con unos propios. Este es su tercer crédito con kiva y se siente muy agradecida por el apoyo financiero recibido, además se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual.
María, invertirá los S/.2500 soles en la compra de ingredientes como carnes, verduras , condimentos y utensilios para su negocio.
