A loan of $1,075 helped improve her property.

Petrona's story

Patrona Márquez is renewing her Kiva loan because now she needs to improve her kitchen much more so that she can offer excellent service to her tenants. She will extend a wall and plaster the rooms that have tenants. She sends the following message to her financiers from Kiva: "I am very grateful to the people who helped me with my first Kiva loan, for having confidence in me and now for giving me a new opportunity." She invested her last loan very well. She redirected the rainwater drainage, filled in the patio, installed flooring, and installed a wash stand for laundry and a drainage system. This helped her improve her home, and for this she is very satisfied.
