A loan of $375 helped to buy merchandise for her food stall.

Maria Cristina's story

Maria is a very driven person. She is fifty years old, single, and lives in Ancash with her family.

She is a single mother of two, but her children are adults and live on their own. Ever since she was very young, she fought to provide for her family because she always wanted to give her children more opportunities. Thanks to her effort, her children are currently working as professionals. For over twelve years, she has been working selling spices and animals. Things are going very well for her thanks to her good work and because she always provides good service.

Maria is very grateful to Kiva lenders because their help will allow her to buy merchandise in order to expand her business and generate more income. This will allow her to keep doing her best to achieve one of her main goals soon, which is to build her own house.
