but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy corn and firewood in bulk.

Luz Marina's story

Over 10 consecutive years, Luz has made a living selling tortillas and cooked beans. She started the business out of necessity to have income and improve her lifestyle, along with that of her children who are under her care. This saleswoman is well-known in her community for being an exemplary woman, a fighter, and, above all, a lady who holds onto every one of her goals.

Luz had previous experience with loans from MiCredito and Kiva where, though the support, she bought corn, griddles, quicklime, beans, and corn flour, and she improved the structure of her business.

At this time she is satisfied with having taken a good step, so much so that she has come back again to the MiCredito and Kiva loans in order to buy corn and firewood in bulk.

In a not-so-distant future, Luz is thinking about investing in some improvements to her home and turning her tortilla shop into a small restaurant.
