Maria Andrea's story

María is an enterprising, 56-year-old woman. She lives with her partner and two children in the town of San Lorenzo, in the province of Esmeraldas.

From a very young age María had to find a source of income to help with the family finances. She now works selling domestic gas. This job has allowed her to meet her financial needs. She started her business eleven years ago. The income she has made has gone toward her family's expenses.

María needs a loan to acquire more cylinders of gas, in order to increase the volume of her sales and generate more income for her home. She is grateful to Kiva for supporting her business. She is confident that with this funding her business will have better financial output.
