Maria De La Cruz's story

Maria, an enterprising single mother, has been in the fast food business for more than 25 years. From a young age she loved food and dreamed of having her own business. When she became pregnant with her daughter, her partner abandoned her and she, with her baby girl, decided to make a living selling soups and lunches on request.

One day, from her savings, she decided to set up a fast food sale. From there that has been the income source to get her daughter ahead. Maria is currently applying for her first Kiva loan at the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation. She will invest the loan in the purchase of the necessary supplies for the preparation of the fast food she offers, such as vegetables, breads, cold meats, among others. Support Maria with her loan. It will be a success.
