A loan of $1,200 helped to buy tables and chairs.

Marisol Iris's story

Marisol is 38, and a person eager to move forward in her life. She lives in the central area of the city of Cochabamba, and she and her family sell food. She is a single mother and has a small daughter. A few years ago she separated from her partner. Now she is working to improve her family's standard of living.

Marisol needs the loan to buy tables and chairs for her business, enabling her to provide better service to her customers, and attract more diners in the future. She is very grateful to the people who, through Kiva, have given her the opportunity to continue with her livelihood.

In the future Marisol is thinking about taking out another loan, in order to finish building her house, and for her daughter's schooling.
