Aura Cristina's story

Aura wakes up very early to start her arduous labour. She has a small general store in the house where she lives. Her family members keep her motivated to get ahead.

Aura has turned to loans from KIVA together with MiCrédito to purchase soap, fabric softener, oats, sugar, rise, shampoo, talcum powder, soup and tuna. Her short term goal is to increase her inventory.
