Laura's story

Laura is 46 years old; she is a very hardworking mother. She lives in her own home with her husband and her three children, who are the reason for her hard work. Since she had her children, she has worked various jobs because now her main priority is to see her children succeed. She is currently selling beauty products to her friends and neighbors. In addition to this, every weekend she makes cakes, which has her up all night mixing the dough. She is also makes mazamorra (corn pudding). The desserts are sold in the doorway of her home. The thing she likes most about her work is talking to customers. She generates good income and that helps with household expenses. In the future she plans to set up a hardware store, which she will keep stocked with household goods. This is her 25th loan through Kiva partner MFP, and she promises to be punctual in her payments, just like she has been up until now. With the loan she is requesting, she will purchase more beauty products to keep up with client demand.
