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

A loan helped to buy corn, meats, beans, and cheese for her business selling prepared foods as a street vendor.

Maria Elizabeth's story

Maria is a hardworking woman who works selling tamales, cooked beans, and cheese, as a street vendor. Her work tool is her tricycle that she rides through the streets of her city.

She knows the work of Kiva through MiCrédito very well because she previously received a loan from both organizations. Her experience was so good that she is seeking a new loan, with the plan to buy corn, meats, beans, and cheese. This will strengthen her business. In the future she would like to buy a motorcycle taxi to make her business more dynamic.
