A loan helped to buy basic goods with a goal of continuing growth and improving her quality of life.


Beatriz's story

Always with a smile, thinking about the future and working hard is how one will find Beatriz, a 55-year-old storekeeper who, thanks to micro loans, has been able to grow and earn an income to put food on the table every day.

Beatriz works 12 hours a day to improve sales and grow her business. Today she is visiting Kiva to apply for a loan to stock her store with grains, groceries and household products.

She is a customer of Interactuar and has a good credit record. Since she is located in the municipality of San Juan de Uraba there is a greater loan risk.
