Auxiliadora Del Carmen's story

Auxiliadora is a hardworking and determined woman who is 55 years of age. She has a store in her home that she has been managing for more than seven years. Her late husband came up with the idea of starting this business as a way of generating an extra income and saving for retirement.

Auxiliadora decided to apply for a Kiva loan from MiCrédito so that she can strengthen her business considerably. The funds will be used to buy rice, beans, oil, meats, canned foods, and household cleaning products. In the future, she would like to improve the infrastructure of her house.
