Kathia Mayela's story

Kathia is a single mother of two children who are 9 and 17 years old and attend primary and secondary school. She has a small grocery store which she runs out of her home and her main customers are her neighbors. Thanks to this work she is able to earn her daily bread and educate her children. Kathia is asking for this loan to invest in her business by buying soft drinks, juices, meat, chicken and vegetables. This will allow her to maintain her daily income and meet the needs of her customers.
