Dania María's story

Dania María was born in El Sauce, where she has lived all her life. She married another resident of El Sauce, and they have three children, one of whom is in college and two are in junior high school. Dania has always been active. She makes her living as a merchant with her husband's help, as he gave her money to invest in a business that she loves, selling gold and silver jewelry and selling cosmetics, her main business. She gets up early to get her children ready for school and then walks to customers' houses to try to make sales. She has been running her business for 17 years, and it has allowed her to earn sufficient income and to help her husband improve their living conditions.

Dania now needs a loan to meet customer demand during the December holiday season. She want to buy cosmetics and cleaning supplies. She trusts in God that the Kiva lenders will provide the funding.
