A loan of $875 helped to buy clothing and stock her store with Mothers' Day products.


Martha Mariela's story

Martha is from Pueblo Nuevo, Estelí. She owns a grocery store which she has been growing bit by bit. She used her first Kiva loan to stock her store and buy new products. She tells us that, as a result, she was able to gain more customers. She was also able to invest in buying new clothing to sell. Martha is requesting her current Kiva loan in order to buy clothing and to stock her store with products for Mothers' Day which is celebrated this month. A lot of her customers are requesting a variety of products to buy and she doesn't want to lose the opportunity to sell products and grow her business.
