Ana Cecilia's story

Ana, a shopkeeper, is grateful to Kiva for providing her with her first loan. This loan will allow her to buy school supplies and school uniforms, and sell books, notebooks, erasers and pens. Now she wants to diversify her business. She will use this financing to buy backpacks, perfumes, clothes and school supplies. Mother's Day is nearing and she wants to offer these products in her stationery store and take advantage of the sale season and at the same time obtain more customers. Her wish is to expand her business and increase every day.
