Marta's story

Marta works selling cheese, cold meats, desserts, and cosmetics, though the catalogue of a business with which she is affiliated. This business offers her the catalogue and the products so that she can carry out her work promoting and selling. With her previous Kiva loan, she was able to buy a greater volume of these products and she is very satisfied, because she got discounts from the providers and she added a new product: desserts, from which she has gotten really good results, because she makes it and distributes it starting Monday and collects the money on Saturdays.

She sends the following message to Kiva lenders: "Thank you for lending me the money to move forward and I hope that you continue to support me and I will respond well to the loan." She is currently applying for a new Kiva loan, with which she will buy ingredients like condensed milk, chocolate, and cookies, to make desserts and buy cheese. These are the products that sell most at the end of the year, because of the Christmas and end-of-year festivities. She is always ready to serve her customers and take advantage of the opportunity that the market gives her to earn more money.
