A loan of $625 helped to buy merchandise for her grocery store such as sugar, soap, coffee, cookies, canned goods, eggs, bread, and more.


Daysi Auxiliadora's story

Daysi, 29, lives in Granada and is a merchant. She owns a small grocery store and has one dependent son. Daysi is a Kiva client and used her first loan to buy materials to build a small space for her grocery store and to buy merchandise. This first loan helped her stock her customers' most requested items like rice, sugar, and beans. Her husband helps her manage the business.

She is applying for a second loan to buy all the necessary merchandise to have a larger inventory on hand: sugar, soap, coffee, cookies, canned goods, eggs, bread, and more. She expects that this loan will be of great help in increasing sales and generating profits to reinvest in her business and make improvements to her house. She plans to expand the business in the future and have a bigger store and profitable business that will generate more income to support her family.
