A loan helped to buy basic grains, oil, soda bottles, canned groceries, and household cleaning supplies.


Maria Yacely's story

Maria is a strong and hard-working woman. She is the owner of a convivence store with which she supports her two children as a single mother. Her family is her motivation to get ahead and grow as a merchant.

She has knocked on the doors of KIVA and MICREDITO to be benefited with a loan that allows her to buy basic grains, oil, soft drink bottles, canned food, and household cleaning items.

Her future goal is to turn her business into a grocery store.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Katie Drumhiller.
