Mayra Mercedes's story

Mayra, a merchant by trade, originally from León, is the owner of a small kiosk where she sells snacks, cookies, juice, phone recharges, and bottled water. She says that thanks to her first Kiva loan, she was able to stock her kiosk with products and her sales improved. Now she wishes to continue adding more new products that capture the attention of her customers and make her kiosk different from the others. Therefore she requires this loan in order to buy cleaning products like detergents and soaps, as well as toilet paper, juices, bread, coffee, milk, plates, glasses, and disposable spoons. She will always keep the goal of putting up another kiosk and adding better and new products to it.
