Maria Jose's story

María José is a young 21-year-old Ecuadorian. She is currently living in a common law marriage. She was born in Arenillas, she has no children and has lived in this city for several years now together with her romantic partner. Due to lack of financial resources she was unable to finish her university studies. Because of the poor economic situation, she had to work in order to support her husband. A while back they lived in Latacunga city, located in Cotopaxi Provence in the Republic of Ecuador, in a rented apartment. María José is a very entrepreneurial woman, a hard worker, and very devoted to her home. Currently she works as a waitress in a very well-known restaurant in her city. Unfortunately it is not stable work. It is for this reason that María José decided to get into a small business purchasing and selling clothes for ladies, gentlemen and children. With this, she had been able to meet her expenses and those of her household. She is a great supporter of her husband, for which she requests a loan that she will utilize in the purchase of merchandise. With this, María José and her family can improve their lifestyle. She is grateful to Kiva for making growth possible in her professional and personal life.
