A loan of $1,500 helps to buy rice, beans, oil, sugar, cheese, chicken, and sodas.


Ruth Del Carmen's story

Ruth is a university graduate on Public Accounting. However, since she could not find a company to work for, she decided to start her own business. Currently, she is the owner of a small grocery store, where she has the unconditional support of her husband and the valuable inspiration of her two children.

Ruth is 30 years old and has knocked on Kiva and MiCrédito doors with the confidence to obtain a loan to buy rice, beans, oil, sugar, cheese, chicken, and sodas.

Ruth, in the short term, thinks of changing her grocery store for a general store.
