A loan of $1,200 helped invest in a used motorcycle cart for her husband.

Lusitania's story

Lusitania is applying for her second loan with Kiva and Mifex. She owns a stand where she sells typical Ecuadorian dishes, such as "encebollado", a fish stew made with albacore and yucca. With her first loan she was able to improve the cart where she sells food. She added wheels and an umbrella to the cart in order to become mobile and travel to crowded places where she could sell. Lusitania did so well she paid her loan off early.

She is requesting this second loan because she wants to help her husband in a new business idea they have. Lusitania has noticed that the new buses from the city have stops that are still far from most people's homes. She wants to invest in a motorcycle cart so her husband can provide this taxi service to the people of the area. They are hopeful that with this loan they will be able to make improvements to their home.
