A loan helped to buy oil, sugar, salt, and detergent, among other things, to sell at her store, and to buy a refrigerator.


Cristela Liliana's story

Cristela has a high school education. She is married and her husband provides transportation services. She has two children, and one of them is in school.

Cristela does housework, but she also decided to start a store because she didn't have a job. She started the business a year ago and her husband helps her manage it.

Cristela will use the loan to buy oil, sugar, salt, and detergent, among other things, to sell at her store, and to buy a refrigerator.

Cristela's dream is to have a larger store where she can get better sales margins.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Laura Swett.
