Maria Del Carmen's story
María, who is 57 years old, has made a living selling perfumes and feminine cosmetics for 10 years, and by means of this business covers most of her household bills. María has already worked with the financier MiCrédito and this is her first time with KIVA. These loans have benefitted María as she affirms that investing this money into buying new cosmetics has attracted new clients, and thus her income has increased. María has applied for a new loan and thinks that the money she is offered can be invested in buying new perfumes and cosmetics in order to expand her inventory. She has faith that with the help of MiCrédito and KIVA her business will continue to flourish.
