María Biviana's story

Biviana is 43 years old, is married to José, and has six children. She has had a tortilla factory for some time. When she started, she ran it out of her home, but now she rents a specific location, which she was able to do with Kiva’s help.

Biviana is once again asking for help from Kiva. She needs to buy gas, and dried corn in order to expand her business and be able to continue moving ahead. Someday she would like to open another location and in this way expand her business more.
