María Jose's story

María José is a hardworking and enterprising 34 year-old woman. She started with ADIM in a communal bank called "Cristhiam" which had 7 loan cycles, 2 of which were funded by Kiva. Now she has graduated to taking credit on an individual basis. Maria has a business selling clothing and cosmetics. She started the business 4 years ago with a small amount of capital that she used to buy some cosmetics; with the loans she has been able to make progress with the business. Maria's goal is to have a general store where she could sell a little of everything, with spaces allocated for clothing, cosmetics, accessories and sweets. While she describes it her face lights up as she is transported to this place that will someday soon exist.
