A loan of $800 helps to purchase wholesale rice, beans, sugar, oil, candy, and soft drinks.

Mauda Elena's story

Mauda is an exceptional woman. Because of the need to have income to provide for her children, she decided to set up and open a convenience store in her humble home. It is a business that she started with small things, and today she now has it better stocked. She has been operating this business for 12 years, and her motive for moving forward day by day has been her children.

Mauda wants a new loan from Kiva, together with MiCredito, to purchase rice, beans, sugar, oil, candy, and soft drinks wholesale to get a better price. This way she will give her customers a good price and stock her store to create better profits. In the future, she is planning to improve the infrastructure of her house to give her business a larger space in order to diversify and earn more income to give her family a better quality of life.
