A loan helped to buy bales of clothing.

Maria Auxiliadora's story

María is 55 years old and earns her living selling clothing and footwear, a business she has operated for some years. She lives in her own house located in the village of Guanacastillo de Pavana. María lives with her two daughters and a grandchild. She sells her products every day from Monday to Sunday. Her customers are her neighbors, friends and fellow worshippers at the church she belongs to. She is a responsible person with the desire to improve her business day by day.

At this time she is requesting her loan to buy bales of clothing to stock her business. She is taking advantage of this medium to say thanks to Prisma and Kiva for the support provided.

Her dream is to make good earnings with her business so she can improve her living conditions.
