A loan of $350 helped to buy a cooler to preserve her products and to avoid losses.


Luz Neida's story

Luz, 20 years old, is a food vendor who daily travels through different neighborhoods in the city of Cartagena with her products: seafood, fruits, and vegetables. She began this work one year ago in order to help her partner with household expenses and to provide for the well-being of her children. Now she is very well-known by the residents of the city, who have become her most loyal clients and trust in the quality of her products.

She needs to buy a cooler to preserve her products and to avoid losses from food in bad condition due to poor preservation. She requests her first Kiva loan through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to achieve this purchase. Please help this hard-working woman with her micro-loan.
