Carmen Maria's story

With her prior Kiva loan Carmen bought rice, condiments, and other items. She achieved higher liquidity, and grew working capital and earnings. To her lenders she says, "Thank you for the support. I've come far in my business and my standard of living. Keep supporting me." Carmen is seeking a new loan with which she'll buy ingredients for her meals as well as sodas and other drinks wholesale and for cash. Her objective is to obtain inventory so she can sell more and improve her business.
