A loan of $625 helped to buy ingredients in bulk to make chicha [a corn drink] and lunches.


Maria Ester's story

With her last Kiva loan Maria bought a cooler. She's happy because her products are very cold and delicious and she has more storage space in her fridge for her chica, drinks and sodas.

With her new loan she plans to buy ingredients in bulk to make chica and food, so that she can get discounts that will make her production costs go down. She is grateful to the Kiva lenders and hopes they keep supporting her because she's very interested in growing her business and generating more income.
