María Lourdes's story

María Lourdes lives in a neighborhood in the capital city. She is very well-known in her neighborhood for being a kind and helpful person. She has a small clothing store for children, ladies, and gentlemen, which she runs in her home to help with the family expenses.

The majority of her customers live near her home and she allows them to pay by credit or cash.

She is requesting a loan from Kiva and CEPRODEL in order to invest it in merchandise to stock her business with summer clothing.

Maria feels grateful because thanks to her previous loans with CEPRODEL she has been able to continue expanding her small business and as a result her profits will improve, thereby changing her family’s living conditions.
