A loan of $825 helped to make upgrades to her business.

Maria Elena's story

Thank you for supporting Maria. With her Kiva loan she bought a photocopier and her sales increased immediately because her clients were pleased with the service and returned. Because her income increased, she was able to renovate her home. This left her feeling very satisfied. Today she says to her financial backers: “I am very thankful and I wish you and your families the very best."

She is currently applying for a new loan that will be used to upgrade her business' facilities to create a more comfortable atmosphere. This way she will attract customers and will make her investment successful.
