Maria Alejandra's story

Maria, along with her family, sells products for the basic food basket. This is her principal source of income. She sells everything related to the basic food basket at a good price. She has a very good customer base, since she is at a strategic point in the zone.

She is applying for the loan for the purchase of merchandise to stock her business, such as soft drinks, juices, eggs, lard, oil, rice, sugar, bread, toilet paper, disposable products, and canned goods, in order to generate greater sales.

She is very pleased with the friendliness and the good treatment that she received on the part of Prisma and Kiva. She is very grateful for the support she received.

Her dream is to have good earnings.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Pam McMurry.


This loan is special because:

It provides credit to some of the most isolated communities in Honduras.
