Miriam Del Carmen's story

Miriam, 55, is a businesswoman, a single mother of three children who have already made lives for themselves.

To cover her household expenses and put food on the table, she has worked for many years tending her convenience store, which has grown little by little thanks to her good management.

Wanting to expand her inventory, she requested a Kiva loan through MiCrédito to buy staple products, personal-care products, sardines, eggs, Maseca, cheese, candy, sweets, cookies, and notebooks, and also to buy women's clothing to have another source of income.

Her greatest desire is to have a variety store and a small clothing store.
