A loan of $1,450 helped to stock her store.


Lucila's story

Lucia is a very hardworking woman and has had a small grocery, vegetable, chicken, soft drinks, and other sales business for three years. She works for up to 10 hours because she depends on the income from her business so she can pay her household expenses. Lucia is grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help, she has been able to buy merchandise, such as household items, groceries, pants, and other things for the Christmas and New Year season, which will allow her to better serve her customers and continue to strive for making her greatest dream a reality, “To grow her business.”
