Irene Mercedes's story

Irene is 63 years old. She is a hardworking, honest, and responsible woman, who has been able to grow her grocery store business through her good management and vision. She has the unconditional support of her three children, who always encourage their mother to succeed as a businesswoman.

She has requested a Kiva loan with MiCrédito, because she has already been helped on other occasions by both organizations. With the new financing, she is going to purchase rice, beans, sugar, and oil, as they are the products that her customers purchase most. She has unwavering confidence in both organizations because she has already had a loan through them.

In the future, she would like to be able to make her grocery store into a general store.
