A loan of $600 helped to buy a refrigerator and a 14" TV.

María Mercedes's story

El Jicaral is a small town where there are entrepreneurial people with a desire to improve their lives. This is where María Mercedes lives.

María Mercedes is 48 years old, married and with a young son in her care. The little she earns barely helps to look after her little son, who she loves and values so much. She has been working at the Minsa maize flour factory in El Jicaral for 16 years, where she is employed in the warehouse. Today, it is her desire to have better conditions for her family.

She is pleased to be employed, but her salary does not allow her to be able to have better conditions for her family. This is why she made the decision to ask Kiva and Ceprodel for a small loan to buy a refrigerator and 14'' TV . With this, it will help to improve her family's conditions.

She hopes in God to receive this privilege for the first time, these small loans which will help her a lot.
