A loan of $450 helped to buy ingredients for rolls and other merchandise.

Maria Lorenza's story

Thanks for supporting María. With her previous Kiva loan she was able to buy flour, salt, and butter wholesale to make the rolls she sells to stores and food businesses. She also bought an industrial stove that allowed her to improve her productivity, as well as clothing, perfume, and footwear that her customers had ordered.

With this investment she improved her productivity level, sales volume, and liquidity. In other words, she had more income and a better quality of life for her family.

Currently she's applying for a new loan to invest in making a wholesale cash purchase of flour, salt, butter, and containers to make rolls. She's also going to buy clothing, perfume, footwear, and lotions to respond to customer requests.

María says to her lenders: "Thanks to Fundación Mario Santo Domingo and Kiva I have made progress in my business. I hope to continue having your support."
