A loan of $1,075 helped to buy construction supplies.


Maricia's story

Maricia's a woman with a great desire to get ahead. She's the mother of three children and strives every day to improve their living conditions. Five years ago Maricia managed to save and start her business selling beer to have income for her household. She also rents a small room so she has extra money for household emergencies.

María's grateful for the help of the Kiva lenders because thanks to them she'll be able to buy construction supplies to make improvements on her home. In particular, she'll buy wood, corrugated metal, nails, and other supplies.

This way she'll continue making the effort to achieve her dream of having a minimarket.
