A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a new food stall.

María Del Transito's story

María is 26 years old; she is married and has a child. She works selling products, in a food stall, activity she learned from her aunt, who has done that for a living her whole life. She buys the products she needs in a city in the eastern side of the country that is about fifteen minutes away from her house, by car. She previously requested a Kiva loan. Today she is asking for another one in order to buy another food stall, and she wants to supply it with candy, beverages, fast food, etc. to generate more income since the first food stall produced good profits. Maria wants to strengthen her businesses, satisfying her customers' demands, so that they will prefer to buy from her, because there is plenty competition in the area. This will allow her to earn a higher income, to provide her child with an education and for the new member of the family who will be born soon.
