Maria Mardonia's story

María is a grateful woman who, thanks to the support received from Kiva, has managed to maintain and diversify her cart selling natural water and medicines for the liver and other ailments. She goes out every day very early to sell her aloe water to the athletes and passersby in the area. In this way, she gets the sustenance for her humble household.

She wants to continue doing her work, so she is asking again for help to purchase aloe vera, horchata, complex, lemon verbena, cloves, cinnamon, and other supplies to prepare her product. In this way, María will make her delicious medicinal water.
