Maria's story

Maria is a modest and an enterprising 41-year-old woman and she is married. She has a very good understanding of and experience with home products and clothing sales.

She has her own home products and clothing store which has been running for many years. Her store is located in an excellent spot that is easy to find and many people always come to buy her goods everyday. Running her business has made Maria become more independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family's every day needs.

She would like a loan of $1300 through KIVA field partner KIF to help improve her store. She plans to use this loan to buy additional supplies of home products and clothes to resell at her store. Maria hopes to expand the size of her business in the future as the result of her investment and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
