A loan of $200 helped to buy notebooks, pencil holders, and books for her children for the new school year.

Maria Elisa's story

Maria is a diligent mother, 41 years old, who resides with her 2 dependent children. For more than 20 years ago, Maria has worked as a house cleaner and cook. Also, she tells us, she caters buffets to help with her income and her home.

Maria feels a sense of pride because, with the aid of her husband, she has constructed their house and has been able to offer her children a good education. Her major desire is to see her children become professionals, and to finish constructing her home, which lacks some work for completion.

On this occasion, Maria is requesting a loan to buy school supplies such as notebooks, pencil cases, and books for her children who are beginning their classes again.

Maria sends her thanks to Kiva lenders for helping people like her.
