Lidia Margarita's story

Lidia is 56 years old. She is married, and her husband works taking people on trips and transporting materials. They have 4 children.

Lidia started out selling meat from her home. Later, she constructed a building from palms so she could make her business bigger. She now sells lunches and prepares food for special events. She wakes up very early to do housework, and then she and her daughter prepare everything needed for her business. She sells snacks and other types of fast food.

She has already been supported via 2 loans from Kiva. She has been able to improve her life, and with effort, she paid off both loans. Lidia requests this loan to buy supplies for food sales.

She dreams of continuing to work in food sales and improving her business little by little.
