Maria Tomasa
Doña María Tomasa has been punctual and responsible. She is grateful because, thanks to help from FAPE and Kiva she has been able to assist her two children to get ahead. Her husband abandoned her and despite that, she has succeeded in helping her family get ahead.

For more than eight years she has run her own store selling daily consumption items. She is requesting a loan to add more inventory to her store, especially everyday necessities. Thus she will increase her sales and profits. Again, she thanks you for the help you have provided her and may God bless you, wherever you are.
