A loan of $850 helped to buy seafood and avocados in greater quantities.


Marybel's story

Marybel used her previous Kiva loan to buy fish and avocados. As a result, her sales went up and her income increased, which meant that she then had more working capital to invest and to use to cater for her customers’ needs. Since she received her Kiva loan, she has started to stock other meat products such as offal, which has proved popular with many of her customers who have businesses. She is currently applying for a Kiva loan to buy seafood and avocados in greater quantities. Marybel would like to thank her Kiva sponsors for this opportunity because she had no previous credit record and now she has more options for accessing loans.
