A loan of $950 helped buy merchandise and remodel her store.


Marcela's story

Marcela start a small dressmaking business, which she had for several years, but she saw that she did not have enough income to help with the family´s expenses so she decided to start up another type of business which would give her better earnings. That is why she decided to start a grocery store. Little by little she invested in merchandise and now she has everything necessary to meet the needs of all her customers. As of today, the store has given her good earnings and she has lots of customers. She needs a loan for US $950, which she will repay in 6 months, to buy merchandise and remodel the store. All her hopes are on the help that Kiva will offer.
