A loan helped to buy athletic shoes for children to sell.


Maria Del Carmen's story

Maria is 33 years old and works selling shoes. She received a Kiva loan, through MiCrédito, that she used to buy footwear and leather shoes. This allowed her to fulfill her needs and those of her customers, and for that she is very grateful

She seeks a new Kiva loan, through MiCrédito, to buy athletic shoes for children because those are most in demand. From the earnings she obtains she will be able to repair the roof of her house.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Laurie Hiller.


This loan is special because:

It includes access to short-term emergency loans.
