Maria Guadalupe
View original language description ↓
Maria started her business because when she married her husband there were no general stores near their home. Presented with the need for income, she started her business 5 years ago, selling sweets from her home. Later, she added general goods, and little by little her business has grown.

She needs a loan of US $250, which she will repay in 6 months, in order to purchase merchandise and restock her general store.

Translated from Spanish to English by Laura Jung, Kiva Volunteer

Maria inició el negocio porque cuando se caso con su esposo, cerca de su casa no había ninguna tienda de abarrotes y ante la necesidad de tener ingresos comenzó hace 5 años, vendiendo dulces en la puerta de su casa, y después empezó a vender abarrotes, poco a poco logro hacer crecer su tienda.

Ella necesita un préstamo por US $250 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar mercancía y resurtir la tienda de abarrotes.
