A loan of $1,000 helps to buy boxes of tomatoes, onions, potatoes, carrots, beets, sweet peppers, and celery.


Esperanza Mercedes's story

Esperanza is a married merchant, and she is the mother of a young man who is her main drive for going forward.

She started selling secondhand clothing and shoes. Over time, she realized she could earn more money, so she also started selling onions, salt, sweet peppers, tomatoes, beets, and eggplant. In her businesses, she has the unconditional support of her husband. She has had previous experience with the loans for her two businesses, and with the loans, she has bought packs of sport shoes.

At this time, she wants to strengthen her grocery business. Because of this, she has returned to Kiva and MiCrédito to buy boxes of tomatoes, onions, potatoes, carrots, beets, sweet peppers, and celery. Her goal for the future is to request a new loan to achieve her goals.
