Sixta Maria's story

Sixta is a noble, charismatic 52-year-old woman. With a smile, she hopes to win the hearts of the residents of the municipality of Puerto Berrio. She makes a living with her restaurant business, which she started in 2004 out of economic necessity due to all the rejections she encountered when applying for a formal job. Sixta comes to the Kiva community requesting a loan that will be for purchasing equipment and raw materials for making food. The purpose is to bolster her business economically and prepare as best she can for the upcoming busy season. She hopes to obtain excellent results, which would mean progress in her business, but she also hopes to have enough demand to generate employment and provide a better standard of living.
