A loan of $375 helped to buy merchandise.


Maria Elena's story

Maria is a woman eager to move forward. She is a mother of 2 children, 11 and 13, for whom she works very hard to be able to offer them a dignified life. Maria works in her small business selling groceries, which she started with much effort. Maria believes that she is moving forward because she is very friendly with the customers and, above all, she sells quality products.

Maria is very thankful for the Kiva lenders given that thanks to their great help she will buy more merchandise for her business like rice, bulk sugar, pasta, etc. This will permit her to assist her customers better and continue fighting in order to be able to make her dream a reality: "To give a career to her children and have a mini market."
