A loan of $475 helped to paint her house.


Sandra Luz's story

Sandra is originally from Oxaca but has been living in Piedras Negras for nine years. She had to migrate due to her husband's employment and since they liked the city of Piedras Negras they decided to live there. Sanda is a very productive entrepreneur who sells quality American cooking products to homemakers. Her husband works as a mechanic for a car dearler. They only have one son who is independent and has his own family. Sandra is requesting a loan through KIVA to renovate the outside of her home. She wants to start by painting the outside which is very worn so the house will look nicer and feel more comfortable for out-of-town family to visit.
