A loan of $750 helped to buy supplies such as rice, oil, dairy products, sugars, and fats.


Marta's story

Thank you for supporting Martha with her Kiva loan, which she invested in supplies, which she used to prepare delicious desserts that sold quite quickly. With this funding, she mobilized even more clients, and she has now been asked to direct her business to food sales. Through this, she is now obtaining new sources of income, and has been able to make improvements to her home. To her lenders, she says, "Thank you for the loan, which has been very beneficial for me. I hope that you continue to support me." She is now applying for a new Kiva loan, which she will use to buy supplies such as rice, oil, dairy products, sugars, fats, etc. to increase her production of foods and desserts, taking advantage of the fact that the year is coming to an end and her sales will be even more greatly affected. The investment of her Kiva loan is successful, in that it comes while she is collecting money from her accounts receivable and giving immediate response to her demanding clientele.
