Maria Elizabeth's story

The member María, is married and mother of a school-age daughter. She works selling food. She makes the food at home and sells it in different places where they ask for it such as work centers, businesses or where they need the service.

María is asking for a loan in order to fund her business in order to buy supplies such as meat, vegetables, and grains, so she can make her meals. She is very grateful to Kiva for helping her in strengthening and expanding her business and for permitting her to give a better education to her daughter. María belongs to the communal bank Milagrosa Virgen del Carmen II in the city of Cusco, Peru.
