Our Christmas Kiva Entrepreneurs…

As part of Mash’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, we provide sustainable loans through KIVA to aid entrepreneurs in developing countries. It's nearly Christmas and Mash Towers are in a festive mood. Therefore, this month we have chosen to loan to 2 entrepreneurs, Paul from Kenya and Maria from El Salvador.

As part of Mash’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, we provide sustainable loans through KIVA to aid entrepreneurs in developing countries. It’s nearly Christmas and Mash Towers are in a festive mood. Therefore, this month we have chosen to loan to 2 entrepreneurs, Paul from Kenya and Maria from El Salvador.

Paul is a timber dealer who is married with 2 children. He began his business 8 years ago by selling scrap timber and later moved on and purchased logging machines. He looks forward to being an exporter and importer of timber and timber products in the future. The extra income from this loan will enable Paul to educate and feed his children.

Maria lives with her 2 sons and her father. She is also taking care of her 3 nieces because their mother, her sister, died four months ago. Her business involves the sale of antojitos (snacks) including roasted bananas and empanadas. The loan will help her stock her business. Maria’s goal is for her business to be prosperous so that she can help the entire family and cover household expenses.

We wish Paul and Maria all the best from all of us at Mash Towers and a very Happy Christmas.
