A loan of $1,000 helps to buy plastics, and purlin framing to improve her shop's structure.


Katherine Isabel's story

Katherine is a 25-year-old single woman and a great merchant committed to improving her family lifestyle.

She buys and sells tin jars, tubes, old beds, and old irons. She has been 6 years in her valuable job, a period in which she worked independently. A girl who day by day gains strength from within to overcome the obstacles that arise.

This merchant has knocked on MiCredito's doors, together with Kiva, with the confidence of obtaining a loan to buy plastics and purlin beams to improve the structure of her shop.

In the short-term future Katherine plans to turn her business around and transform it into a solid grocery store.
