Miriam's story

With her previous Kiva loan, Miriam did many things, such as buying chairs, tables and a long list of wholesale ingredients such as rice, oils, grains and pastas, that allowed her to get special discounts. She sends a message of thanks to the Kiva lenders, and says "they allow the small entrepreneur to strengthen her business," so she asks to continue counting on them.

Presently the year-end holidays are approaching and with them an increase in her sales. Because of this she needs more supplies to make rice cakes or doughs, vegetables, and three meats which are cooked after being wrapped in heliconia leaves, which is the most representative product of these celebrations and that which generates the most revenue. This means that her new Kiva loan will once again be successful.
