Maria Pastora's story

María is 49 years old and is an optimistic and hardworking woman. She has been the proprietor of a grocery store for 5 years. This business has sustained her and improved her quality of life, thanks to her efforts and those of her husband.
María is grateful to financing from MiCrédito and Kiva. She is currently requesting her 11th loan with MiCrédito and her second through the Kiva program. She has always invested her loans in her grocery store, buying staple goods such as: rice, beans, oil, sugar, dairy products, canned goods, groceries, and common household products.
She intends to use the money from the current loan to buy clothes and cosmetics to offer in her store. She says that this loan will improve her finances as she will buy products that are requested in this season and so make extra income.
María wants to rebuild the physical store and grow her premises after paying the existing loan as the space in which she currently runs her businesses is very small.
She says that, thanks to her dedication and the help of her husband and MiCrédito, she has been able to get ahead.
