A loan of $350 helped grow her inventory.

Patricia's story

Patricia's goal is to help her children realize their dreams; they are striving to be professionals, so along with her husband, Patricia is trying to support them by offering them an education and a home full of love. Because of her desire to grow (personally) as well as support her children, Patricia works very hard at her local market, where she sells vegetables, something she has been doing for eight years. During this time she learned the best way to purchase her supplies - before, for lack of experience, she had big losses, but now she's more skilled in sales and has been improving her business, which has propelled her into the future with a second location for selling her wares.

Patricia is one of the founders of her (business) group, so she has been a member of Kiva partner MFP since the organization came to her area. She and her partners had the chance to come together and form a group that is so solid and well organized that it has survived seven long years, thanks to its leaders who motivate and support all the members.

With this loan that she is asking for, Patricia will grow her inventory by purchasing items at low prices but good quality in order to satisfy her customers.
