A loan of $650 helped to purchase cleaning products and soft drinks as well as to install a new roof on her apartment.


Gregoria's story

Gregoria used her previous loan to buy personal hygiene products such as soaps, toothpaste, disposable diapers and sanitary napkins, as well as soft drinks and beer. Her Kiva loan was very helpful because she was able stock her store with products requested by visitors and patients of the nearby hospital.

She is currently applying for a new Kiva loan, which she will use to purchase hygiene products and soft drinks as well as to install a new roof on her apartment. Then her business, which is currently located inside her home, will be protected.

Her message to Kiva funders is this: "Thank you to those people who, without knowing us, have helped us so that our businesses move forward and improve. May you continue to support us."
