A loan helped to buy cookies, perfumes, corn, beans, sugar, etc., to sell.


María De Los Ángeles's story

María is married. Her husband is a mason and a merchant. She has three children who are working.

María has a small staple goods store in her house. She also goes out to sell cookies and perfumes. She works from 5:00 in the morning until 5:00 in the afternoon. Her husband helps her.

María needs a loan to buy cookies, perfumes, corn, beans, sugar, etc., to sell. Her dream is to have better living conditions, and that her family prosper.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Laurie Hiller.
