Maria Natividad's story
San Miguel de los Bancos is a canton with a warm, humid climate, and friendly, hard-working people. It is located in the northwest part of Pichincha Province. This canton has a number of tourist sites, one of which is the Waterfall of Love where the canton's birthday is traditionally celebrated. Maria lives in this canton. She is a 21-year-old enterprising woman who has a strong common law relationship. Her husband works as a day laborer for the local government. They have two children for whom they struggle day after day to give them a better future. Maria is asking for this loan so she can start a business raising chickens. She learned about this business on her own initiative and will dedicate an average of six hours every day to it. This investment will enable her to help with the household expenses and continue raising her small children. Maria is grateful to Fundacion Alternativa and to Kiva for the support and the opportunity they are providing.
