A loan of $625 helped to buy a new computer and a cooler to sell soft-drinks.


Erika Maria's story

Thank you for supporting Erika who used her Kiva loan to increase her purchases of clothes, cosmetics and a computer system. She managed to open an Internet café to generate more income. Now, Erika manages her business with higher profitability and her income is refreshed.

She’s currently applying for a new Kiva loan to buy new computer equipment and a cooler to sell soft-drinks, especially ice. She sends the following message to her Kiva lenders: “Thanks for the opportunity of getting more help to strengthen income.” She asks that you continue to support her.
