A loan of $500 helped to buy sugar, pastas, snack foods, soap, and detergents.


Maria Delmy's story

María is asking for a new loan because she wants to invest in her business by bolstering the inventory of the store she set up. This will allow her to offer her customers better service and it will allow her to keep what they want in stock. She will buy sugar, oil, pastas, snack foods, soap, and detergents, among other products her customers demand for their daily use.

With her previous loan, she was able to get more supplies to make tortillas, which has allowed them to better serve their customers. As their sales have been good, her business has been changing and becoming more successful now that she has set up a storefront where she sells drinks and tortillas. She believes that it is because of the Kiva loan that she and her family are prospering.
