Maria Isabel's story

Maria is 51 years old and is a widow. She lives in Arizona (within Atlántida). She started her own grocery store 11 years ago and sells groceries such as basic grains, soft drinks, dairy products, sweets, etc. This is her third Kiva loan and it is for 13,000 lempiras. She will use the money to buy goods such as rice, sugar, beans, lard, eggs, bread, churros, flour, and soft drinks to sell during this season. In this way, she will be able to make bigger profits and work towards her goal of improving her business and keeping it well stocked.
