A loan of $625 helped buy furniture.


Gloria's story

Gloria has lived in Piedras Negras for 42 years. She is a hardworking and very happy person who has a great strength which has led her family forward together with her spouse. She is the mother of two children, a young boy who is 13 and a little girl who is 9. Gloria dedicates herself to renting portable furniture for events, like tables and seats. She also sells piñatas, and if that weren't enough, she works in a tortilla shop at night. She's a very entrepreneurial woman. She asks for support through Kiva for the purchase of furniture to continue renting tables and chairs because the ones she has have become a bit damaged and she would like to always be the best option for her clients. In the future, she would like to have her own event hall, but she wants to begin little by little until she achieves her dream.
