Alejandra
Alejandra started her business because when she lived with her husband sometimes things did not go well at his work and she wanted to help him with the household expenses and later when he died she was able to survive and take care of her children thanks to the business. She opened her business in March 1985 when her husband was still alive. He was employed elsewhere and she took care of the store and since her home was on a very busy street, they installed air conditioning to the patio and set up a small wood store. She started with a tiny store but thanks to previous loans from Kiva she was able to expand and better air condition her store and today has a larger space.

She needs a loan of MXN $8,000 which she will repay in 12 installments to buy more groceries which will allow her to be better stocked and give her customers better service.

Alejandra inició el negocio Porque cuando vivía su esposo a veces no le iba muy bien en su trabajo y ella quiso ayudarlo con los gastos de la casa y después, cuando el falleció, gracias al negocio pudo subsistir y sacar adelante a sus hijos. Comenzó el negocio en Marzo de 1985 todavía vivía su esposo, el trabajaba como empleado y ella atendía la tienda y como su casa quedaba en una calle muy transitada, acondicionaron el patio de su casa y puso un local de madera pequeño. Empezó con un local pequeñito, pero gracias a su crédito anterior con Kiva pudo ampliar y acondicionar mejor su local y ahora cuenta con mayor espacio

Ella necesita un préstamo por MXN $8,000 que pagara en 12 catorcenas para comprar más abarrotes que le permita tener mejor surtida su tienda y dar un mejor servicio a sus clientes
