A loan of $600 helped to buy merchandise for her business.

Maria Estela's story

Maria lives in Managua. She is married and works as a merchant, selling nacatamales. She benefitted from her first Kiva loan and used it to invest in her business. She also bought used clothing and costume jewelry to sell. She is grateful for the fist loan which allowed her to increase her income and get her business ahead. Now she needs this loan to buy glasses, plates, ladies' blouses creams, and cosmetics. All this is for mothers day, which is a good time to sell. Her goal is to open a used clothing store.
