Maria Magdalena's story

Mary is a 48-year-old woman. She lives in Imperial City with her three children. She is a persevering and hardworking woman who is always trying to move ahead along with her two children. Two of her children, thanks to the effort of their mother, are studying a career at the university. The youngest is in secondary school. Maria is a dedicated mother whose greatest dream is for her children to be professionals and good people.
With much industry, enthusiasm and with savings from her work in the countryside, for the past year Maria has been renting little electric cars. She has been buying them little by little. She now owns eight little cars, which are available for use. Maria is very happy with her work. She is grateful for the children and would like to make them happy.
Maria is very grateful for the loans from KIVA. Thanks to their help, she is able to buy clothing for women and children and adults such as pants, blouses, sweaters, and shirts among other items. With this loan she can supply her new business of clothing sales. With this business she hopes to increase her earnings. In the not so distant future she will be able to increase her little car business.
