A loan of $1,425 helped to purchase ingredients to make her delicious food.


Belkis Candelaria's story

Belkys will use her new Kiva loan to buy raw materials and ingredients for making her delicious foods, because carnival season is approaching, which is when her sales increase, especially in her restaurant. She is applying for this loan, taking into account her experience with her previous Kiva loan. With it she was able to increase her working capital somewhat, especially in the seasons of greater commercial activity, which is when she invested. As a result, her success is based in her experience in the market and also in her ability to choose exactly when to invest so that her money can multiply through her work.
