A loan of $300 helped to buy baking supplies.


Mariana De Jesus's story

Mariana lives in the city of Granada and works making and selling pastries. She says that her first Kiva loan was very useful and helpful because it arrived when she most needed it and she was able to buy raw materials and molds to make her delicious desserts. She now has a larger clientele and a higher number of requests for her products. She’s very grateful for having been helped to have financial back-up and for opening a door towards her business’ progress. She needs financing to buy flavoring agents, sugar, oil, flour, butter, eggs and baking powder. For now, her goal is to produce a variety of pastries and continue investing in her business to make it more stable every day.
