Lupe Maria's story

Lupe is an enterprising woman, 37 years of age, who lives in the city of Barranquilla with her two children and her partner.

Lupe Maria started a business 12 years ago selling groceries and cleaning products, with which she has been able to help her husband with household expenses and to get her children ahead. She offers her merchandise to stores in the area and nearby.

Now she is requesting her first Kiva loan from the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to expand her product offering and increase her profit margin, by purchasing shavers, shampoo, deodorant, and other items. Please support her business loan.
