Maria's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me become financially independent by growing my Salvadorean food business.
My name is Maria Sorto and I came from El Salvador. I came to the United States three years ago on April 27th 2014. I would say that the biggest challenge coming here has defineteley been the language and the lack of education and access to an steady income. Since I came here I have had to take many jobs at the same time just to make ends meet and provide for my family. I am married and have two children. One 16 years old and the other is 11 years old. My dream is to have a steady income and with hard-work, patience and your help with this Kiva loan I am going to achieve that.
