Ma Eugenia
View original language description ↓
When María Eugenia got married, her husband covered all of their home's expenses. When she started to have their children, the money he made didn't go as far. The moment came when they didn't have enough to pay for their children's education. Eugenia didn't want her kids not to have an education, so she started to buy and resell clothing and shoes among her family members and friends. With the little money she made, she restocked her business.

Right now, they want to grow their business more to make more profits since what they are earning still doesn't cover their expenses. This is why Eugenia is requesting a credit of $850 that she is willing to repay in 6 months. With this money, she will buy more merchandise to be able to make more income so her children can study and be honorable people with more opportunities.

Translated from Spanish by Tanya Harper, Kiva volunteer

María Eugenia se casó y todos los gastos del hogar los cubría su esposo, sin embargo cuando comenzaron a nacer sus hijos fue cuando el dinero comenzó a rendirles menos. Y llegó un momento en que no les alcanzaba para pagar los gastos de la escuela de sus hijos. Pero Eugenia no quiere que sus hijos no tengan educación y por eso que comenzó a comprar y revender ropa y zapatos entre sus familiares y amigos, con lo poco que juntaba resurtía su negocio.

Sin embargo actualmente desean crecer más su negocio para poder obtener más ganancias puesto que lo que están ganando los dos ya no les alcanza para poder pagar los gastos. Es por eso que Eugenia está solicitando un crédito de US $850 que está dispuesta a pagarlos en un plazo de 6 meses y con este dinero comprar más mercancía para poder así sacar más ingresos para que sus hijos estudien y sena unas personas de bien con más oportunidades.
