A loan helped to buy wholesale corn.


Mariela Maria's story

Mariela is a hard-working woman with many goals for her life which she will not stop striving for until she achieves them. At 41 years old, she is dedicated to making and selling tortillas. She has 15 years of experience in this economic sector. She is very grateful for her husband because he has supported her since the beginning of this work.
Mariela is requesting a new Kiva loan with MiCrédito to buy wholesale corn to spend less money and earn more income. This will allow her to expand her business and improve her quality of life. Mariela, in the short term, is thinking about turning her tortilla shop into a diversified grocery store.
