A loan of $1,200 helped to buy corn for pastries.

Ana's story

With her previous Kiva loan Ana made improvements to her home, especially to the bathrooms. She also bought raw materials and supplies for pastries and prepared a lot of dough with corn, which she sold quickly and at good prices. Her sales have increased and her life is calm, because she does not give credit to unreliable people which was costly for her before and did not allow her business to be profitable enough. She now needs a Kiva loan once again to invest in a greater volume than usual of raw materials, because the New Year's holiday is approaching and a large volume of orders is arriving. She will also use the Kiva loan to have preventive maintenance done on her machines. Her success is rooted in her capacity for work and in her customers, the number of which increases every time due to her sense of responsibility and the quality of her work.
