She is a hard-working merchant who gets up every day with the hopes of changing her family's economic situation.

This veteran businesswoman was previously the beneficiary of a loan from MiCrédito together with Kiva where she bought cleaning products, sugar, rice, tuna and oil. At this time she feels much satisfaction from having expanded her store. So she has once again approached MiCrédito together with Kiva confident she can get a loan to buy oil, cheese, beans, shampoo, soft drinks and rice.
