Maria Mercedes's story

Sra. Maria Mercedes has already repaid a previous Kiva loan on time. The funds were invested in her business, but due to her husband’s health problems, she was forced to close her store.

Maria is requesting a loan to remodel the interior and exterior of her house. She does not have the funds needed to buy materials and special paint to protect the walls from heat and humidity. Maria plans to repay the loan using the income she receives from a government pension. Her family’s expenses will be covered by her husband’s income.
