A loan of $825 helped buy food items in volume and cleaning supplies.


Luz Mary's story

Luz Mari has a message for Kiva donors: “Thank you for all the support you give to Colombia’s business people.” All is going well, and with her previous loan from Kiva she bought food items which have the greatest turnover and generate immediate income. Now Luz is applying for another loan to buy cleaning products and more food items to stock her store which constantly needs replenishing. The money helps her run a successful business because she buys products that sell quickly. Through buying in volume she is able to get discounts and generate more income.
