A loan of $825 helped to purchase chicken and groceries.

Martha Cecilia's story

With her last Kiva loan, Martha bought chicken directly from farms and sold it at her business. She also bought foodstuffs such as rice, oil, coffee, and sugar. She was able to offer her good customers credit and she now has more buyers. She is currently applying for a Kiva loan to buy chicken in greater volume because Christmas and the new year are approaching and she needs to be prepared to sell more to increase her profits. She is very happy with her chicken sales because they have increased, as well as her grocery sales, and she thanks Kiva's lenders and Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, as she tells us that if it were not for these organizations, she would be working for loan sharks and making less money.
