Maria Elena's story

Maria Elena, a young woman of 21 years of age, is from San Martin Jilotepeque. She works selling clothing for men, women, and children, and has been doing so for five years. She enjoys her work very much, and she is grateful to Fape and Kiva for the assistance they have provided as the loans authorized on her behalf have allowed her to get ahead in business and better stock her shop. She is requesting this loan in order to purchase clothing in a variety of sizes and styles, and she hopes the finances she has sought will help her to continue growing her business.
