Alejandra's story

Alejandra started her business because when she lived with her husband sometimes things did not go well at his work and she wanted to help him with the household expenses and later when he died she was able to survive and take care of her children thanks to the business. She opened her business in March 1985 when her husband was still alive. He was employed elsewhere and she took care of the store and since her home was on a very busy street, they installed air conditioning to the patio and set up a small wood store. She started with a tiny store but thanks to previous loans from Kiva she was able to expand and better air condition her store and today has a larger space.

She needs a loan of MXN $8,000 which she will repay in 12 installments to buy more groceries which will allow her to be better stocked and give her customers better service.
