A loan helped to buy a cart with two deep-fryers and a griddle as well as an electric grinder.


Maria Edilma's story

Thanks to Maria's great work capacity, she can give her family a decent life. She has prepared and sold meals on her own in the town of Sonson for 15 years. She is 65 years old.

She hopes to give her business a boost by buying a cart with two deep-fryers and a griddle as well as an electric grinder. Kiva lenders in conjunction with Interactuar can give her business this boost. With these elements she will be able to have her dishes ready for her customers at any time.
