Marcelina
View original language description ↓
Marcelina started her own business because she wanted to have the extra income that would allow her to help out with the household expenses. She wanted to help her husband so that their children, who at that time were minors, would not lack anything. Sixteen years ago, she started her piñata business, initially only making them for her family members. Little by little, more people got word of her skills, and now she sells her piñatas to the owners of candy stores and banquet halls.


She needs a loan of $900.00 USD, which she will repay in 6 months, in order to purchase more materials so that she can finish some piñatas that have been ordered. With your help, she will make her business grow.

Translated from Spanish by Elizabeth Casian, Kiva Volunteer.


Marcelina inició el negocio por que queria tener un ingreso que le permitiera apoyar con los gastos de la casa y ayudar a su esposo para que a sus hijos que en aquel entonces eran menores no les faltara nada. Comenzó su negocio hace 16 años con la venta de piñatas, haciendolas para familiares y así poco a poco mas personas la conocieron de que hacia piñatas y actualmente le vende a algunas dulcerías y salones de fiestas.


Ella necesita un prestamo por US $900 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar material de trabajo, y poder terminar algunas piñatas que ya tiene vendidas. Con tu apoyo ella hara crecer su negocio.
