A loan of $1,700 helped to buy a washing machine, welding equipment, beauty products and other merchandise.


Martha Cecilia's story

With her previous loan from Kiva, Martha bought various beauty products to sell and a washing machine to rent out. The loan also helped her buy a showcase and a tent so that her husband can work under better conditions in his car shop.
With this loan, she was able to increase her work capital, her customers and create the appropriate environment for her husband to carry out his automotive work.
Currently, she is applying for another loan from Kiva. With this she will buy another washing machine, welding equipment, beauty products and other merchandise her customers ordered.
Her message to the lenders at Kiva is that she is very thankful. She is also satisfied with the service of the loan and she is asking that you continue supporting her to help her offer a quality education to her children.
