A loan of $375 helped purchase fruits and vegetables.


María Teresa's story

Mrs. Maria B. sells fruits and vegetables in the Ivan Montenegro Market in Managua. She sells goods to her faithful customers who visit her daily at the market.

She works every day, starting early in the morning, in order to improve the economic condition of her family. Because of this, she has put her hope in Kiva partner Ceprodel and applied for a loan to buy more products. It is important to bring out that this loan will help with the purchase of fruits and vegetables that she needs so much.
