A loan of $625 helped to buy corn, quicklime and firewood..


Cayetana Del Rosario's story

Cayetana is a humble vendor who makes a living making and selling tortillas. She is a native of the city of León and mother to 5 children, the youngest of whom studies Biology and who she supports. Her first Kiva loan gave her the opportunity to buy raw ingredients to produce tortillas and obtain an income to help to pay for her children's studies. Cayetana now distributes her products to small grocery stores and sells from door to door. She continues to pursue her plans of improving the roof of her kitchen little by little and lay down flooring. Part of the financing that she is seeking today will be used to buy corn, quicklime and firewood, as well as to get her youngest child ahead in life so that he succeeds given that she was unable to study.
