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


Carmen Beatriz's story

Carmen, 26, is a woman who is a fighter, is single, and lives in San Martin with her family. She has a little daughter who is her greatest source of pride in life and to whom she wants to offer the best opportunities and a better education. With much effort and dedication, she was able to open a small store and nowadays she makes a living selling groceries, plastic items, and other products of primary necessity. Things go well for her because she is responsible, hard-working and always offers quality products and makes payment arrangements. Carmen is grateful for the Kiva investors because with the support they have offered her she will be able to buy merchandise to supply her business and in this way be able to make more profits. In this way, she will be able to improve the quality of life for her family and later on have her own house.
