Ligia Maria's story

Doña Ligia is 40 years old and resides in Laureles Sur. She has two children who are in elementary school. Her husband works with her in a small local store which they have had for six years, since it began with a liquidation of the business in the duty-free zone where she worked previously. Their plans are to continue investing in their business so that it will be profitable and they will be able to organize their family. Their objective is to be able to finish the construction of their house and for their children to receive a good education. Afodenic, an affiliate of Kiva, has offered them the opportunity to enlarge their business inventory. This is their sixth request, and will be invested in buying various products like canned products, meats, and delicacies, among other things, that will cover the needs and diet of their clients.
