A loan helped to buy candy, oatmeal, toothpaste, cheese, eggs, sardines, spaghetti, noodles, and personal hygiene products.


Maria Del Socorro's story

María is a woman who is always thinking about how to improve her business in order to generate better income to provide a better life for her family.

She is the owner of a grocery store that has been able to diversify with the help of Kiva and MiCrédito. At this time she feels very happy about the loan that she previously received and feels so confident that she has, once again, turned to the financing of both organizations to buy candy, oatmeal, toothpaste, cheese, eggs, sardines, spaghetti, noodles, and personal hygiene products.

In the future she plans to have a store where she can sell miscellaneous items.
