A loan of $1,500 helps to buy silver earrings, chargers, headphones, perfumes, creams and hair dyes.


Maria Mercedes's story

María, age 40, works selling perfumes, nail polish, creams, headphones and cell phone cases. She started her business because she needed incomes in order to help her husband with the household expenses. This businesswoman is a source of pride for her children for been an optimistic and perseverant mother. She attended university and has a degree in System Engineering.

Doña María has turned to MiCrédito and Kiva with the hope of getting a loan to buy silver earrings, chargers, headphones, perfumes, creams and hair dyes. In the near future, María wants to have a store where she can sell clothing and sport shoes for children, women and man.
