A loan of $500 helped to buy basic grain, firewood, rice, chicken, tomato, potatoes and onions.


Luisa Emilia's story

Luisa, 55, expresses her gratitude for the opportunity of her first Kiva loan that she used to buy all the raw materials needed to prepare her delicious food since her orders have increased and she has a few more customers. She used her first loan to buy chicken, rice, oil and vegetables. But her main priority is to expand the business to meet customer demand and needs a second loan to buy basic grains, firewood, rice, chicken, tomato, potatoes and onions. Her goal is to grow as a successful businesswoman.
