A loan helped to invest in buying cheese wholesale to lower her costs.


Carmen María's story

Carmen María is 31 years old. She lives in the municipality of Soledad, and she sells cheese wholesale and retail. She lives with her spouse and is the mother of two children, aged 10 and 9. She started her business due to her farming roots, and because her realtives are involved in cheesemaking. Her spouse participates in the activity and her main customers are stores, merchants and neighbors. Every day, they make their rounds to deliver the cheese. They start at 6 a.m. and go until 9 p.m. Now Carmen is taking out her first Kiva loan to invest in buying cheese wholesale to lower her costs. She dreams big- she wants to have a regional distribution of dairy products. Support her in her business loan.
