Mercedes De Los Angeles's story

Mercedes, 37, is a dedicated and responsible woman. She is single and has one son who is in high school. Fifteen years ago, she started working making and selling food, which she has done successfully. Her clients report that her dishes are delicious and return repeatedly. The love that Mercedes puts into making her dishes is the secret ingredient that makes them taste so good.

She has decided to seek a Kiva loan through Mi Crédito in order to make some renovation to her restaurant by painting, purchasing tables and chairs, purchasing a refrigerator, and purchasing products, such as chicken, beef, vegetables, and condiments. This will allow her to increase her sales in the upcoming season. In the next 10 years, she hopes that her business will grow so that she will be able to create jobs and increase her earnings.
