María Elsa's story

María is 55 years old, she lives with her husband in the hamlet of San Luis del Milagro, in Jaén province, Perú. She is a very hardworking woman who together with her husband struggles from day to day to provide for their children. María and her husband run a business selling household goods that generates income that they use to pay for household expenses. In addition they make some money growing coffee and letting a house in the city of Jaén. She will use the loan to buy domestic goods and expand the stock in her small shop to increase sales to her customers. She understands that being responsible will open up more opportunities to improve the living conditions in her home. This is her second loan and she is grateful to Kiva for helping her to grow.
