A loan helped to buy utensils, fixtures, and food products for her business.


María's story

Maria, like many women of her community, strives every day to obtain income and proper in life. She says that thanks to the loan she was able to buy medicine for her mother and she is much better now. For that she is thankful to the Kiva investors for the big help they gave her. Maria again has the need of a loan but on this occasion it is to invest in her food business. Being as hygienic and responsible as she is in preparing food, Maria has a lot of customers and what she has is not enough. That is why she is asking for a loan to buy utensils, fixtures and products for quick preparation for her business. With this business, she hopes to meet the needs of her customers. Her hope in life is to build a bigger house so that her home will be more comfortable.
