Maria Mercedes's story

The life of María, 66 years old, has been very tragic. Her mother died when she was little, she grew up in a home as an adopted daughter, and never went to school. However, María overcame many barriers and managed to get ahead.

Currently, María has her own business where she works selling a variety of merchandise. She works with a credit system and didn't have enough capital to fill all of her customers' orders, so she came to MiCrédito seeking a loan to invest in the purchase of cosmetics and school supplies to offer her customers in this season.

Thanks to the Kiva organization, the loan was granted. Kiva supports this type of women with desire to improve themselves who need backing for their businesses.
