A loan helped to purchase inventory for her small grocery store.


María's story

Maria is married. She works in her small business (a grocery store.) She has two children who are dependent on her. She and her spouse work together to cover the expenses of the household and children. Her husband is a farmer who grows vegetables. She administers the little store.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva together with Aldea Global in order to purchase inventory and stock up on new products; in this way she will be able to meet customer demand.

Making this investment will enable her to improve her family's finances.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Pamela Allyn.
