Quenia Mercedes's story

Quenia is 39 years old and is from Leon originally.

She is grateful for the help she has received through a loan from Kiva. This is the first time that she has worked with this type of loan, and it has been very positive for her business. She used it to buy staples such as corn, lime and firewood. Her sales have increased.

Now she is asking for a second loan in order to buy staples such as tortillas, also cement, sand and wood. She wants to begin to make repairs to her home little by little and likewise improve her business conditions.
