A loan helped to sell vegetables to sell in her business.


María Candelaria's story

María went to school up to the ninth grade. She is partnered and her partner works hauling sand and rocks. At this time, she has no children.

María has sold vegetables for 4 years and she learned the trade from her parter. She also sells pupusas. She works at her first job from 3:00 am to 3:00 pm and the second job from 4:00 pm onward.

María will use the loan to buy vegetables to sell in her business.

Her dream is to have better housing.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Ellen Donohue.
