A loan of $1,125 helped to buy products such as milk, sauces, coffee, sugar, etc.


Martha Cecilia's story

Martha used her previous Kiva loan to buy food products, snacks and soft drinks which she sold in her store and, as a result, she slightly increased her working capital and profits. Since she received her loan she has opened another business and now has two income-generating businesses in different parts of the city. She sends the following message to Kiva lenders: "Thanks to the support you have given my business, it has grown rapidly". Martha is currently requesting a new Kiva loan with which she plans to buy products such as milk, sauces, coffee, sugar and other food products because this is a time of year when her demand, and consequently her profits, increase.
