Meyling's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to stock-up her grocery store.

Meyling's story

Meyling completed her studies until the 5th grade of secondary school. She was 22 when she got together with her spouse, but later became a widow. She has a daughter who appears in the picture.

She has had a business for 7 years that she has been able to manage effectively. This is why she is requesting a loan from Kiva and Aldea Global to buy supplies and stock-up her store and offer her customers what they want.

Making this investment will allow her to generate more income, and this way save and increase her inventory, given that what she saves she invests in the store.
