A loan of $1,000 helped to buy corn, beans, cheese, pork, etc.

Maria Marcos's story

María Marcos lives with her life partner and their children. She has been selling pupusas for several years already and has gained a lot of experience, which helps her make the best profits she can. Her business is located in her home in a community with a lot of foot traffic. She has made a lot of customers, as people prefer her for her exquisite pupusas, their quality, low prices, and above all her unparalleled service. María is a model woman, dedicated to her work, who loves fighting for her dreams. Every day she puts in her best effort to make herself a better future and never thinks of giving up until she has achieved success. Like any good merchant, she wants to grow her business but doesn't have enough capital on hand, which brought her to request this loan from Apoyo Integral [Kiva field partner] that will allow her to buy corn, beans, cheese, pork, etc. María has a good payment history and is morally beyond reproach. She assures us that she will be able to pay off the loan and hopes that it will provide her family a better quality of life.
