Maria Auxiliadora's story

María is an enterprising woman who runs her own business. Her grocery store supplies products for her customers and this business has been her main source of income for many years in her community, which is called El Jicaral de Linaca.

This loan will be used to further invest in her business so that she can meet her customers' high demand. She is requesting it from Kiva through Prisma Honduras in order to improve her living standards.

María's goal is for her business to grow so that she can have a better quality of life.
