María José's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped buy a toilet, washbasin, door, tiles, and taps for her bathroom.

María José's story

María is a hardworking young woman who has earned her living in a beauty salon for ten years.

Together with her husband she started building a house which remains unfinished as there is no proper bathroom. She has left a space available so it can be completed, but at the moment it is only used on a temporary basis as it lacks safety and privacy.

María has approached MiCrédito for a loan from Kiva to buy construction materials for the bathroom which would have a toilet, washbasin, door, tiles, and taps. Her dream is to complete the house so that it has all the comforts. Then she wishes to build her own beauty salon where she can offer manicures, pedicures, and hair services including blow drying.
