A loan of $900 helped to purchase merchandise.


Matilde Maximina's story

Matilde is a hardworking woman above all because she is the mother of two children whom she has brought up alone because her spouse abandoned her a few years ago. Matilde has overcome very difficult moments, especially when her parents passed away, but in spite of these adversities Matilde has continued to get ahead with a lot of effort. It is because of this, combined with a lot of dedication, that she has a business selling clothing and beauty products with which she is able to earn income to succeed. Matilde is thankful for the loans from Kiva because thanks to their help she will be able to purchase merchandise for her business like polos, shorts, pants and beauty products, among others, which she can use to meet the orders of her clients and to continue working to make her dream a reality: for her children to grow up to be professionals.
