Marcia Hellen's story

Marcia is 45 years old, lives in the city of León, and is mother to four children. She is a trader, who works selling clothing. She is a Kiva client, and is very grateful for the support provided because little by little, thanks to the financing she has received she has gradually grown as a trader, supported by her children who push her to succeed.

Marcia is requesting her second loan to buy clothing such as pants, blouses, shoes, cosmetics and mannequins. One of her goals is to improve the infrastructure of her business to expand it more until she can make it into a clothes store alone, to boost her earnings.
