A loan of $750 helped to purchase products such as grains, rice, beans, sugar, oil and cosmetics.

Maria Lourdes's story

Maria is a native of Estelí. She is a merchant who owns her own "pulpería" [small convenience store].

She is grateful to Kiva because she was able to use her first loan to stock her business. Things have gone well, her sales improved and she was able to satisfy the demand she had.

She now requests a new loan to purchase products such as basic grains, rice, beans, sugar and oil; and cosmetics.

Her goal for the future is to have the best "pulpería" in the area and to improve her income.
