Maria Del Carmen's story

María is a 51 year old woman. she has a family business where she makes candies, caramels and cajetas (a local sweet). Together with her husband, brother and her five children they manage to keep up the sales. Thanks to a loan from Kiva and MiCrédito she was able to attrct new clients since she made more products with higher quality. Sales of her handmade caramels grew notably.

As María sees that it is quite feasible to make a greater quantity of her products, she has requested another loan to buy bags of sugar, dyes and candies amongst other things which she will use as raw material. She hopes to continue working with the support of the loans until she can achieve her dream of making her business into a factory equipped with machinery and open a store selling coffee.
