Santos
Santos is 51 years old and married. She lives in Olmos, an agricultural area with quite a lot of commercial activity which is located in Lambayeque province, more than one and a half hours from the city of Chiclayo.

For 6 years, Santos has had a small grocery store located in her home where she sells food products and essentials. She is located almost 30 minutes from the village of Olmos. Owing to this distance, Santos' business is one of the few grocery stores in her region. Consequently, she has an established and loyal customer base and manages to make a good profit margin. She would like to expand her business by purchasing more merchandise such as rice, sugar and oil. By investing her loan, she will increase her income and improve her own and her husband's quality of life.

Santos has had previous loans which she has repaid punctually. It is clear that her business has grown because when she started she only sold soda and candies. Now she sells rice, sugar, oil, noodles, milk, etc. Santos feels satisfied with the trust that Kiva lenders and Edpyme Alternativa have placed in her.

Santos tiene 51 años de edad y es casada. Viven en Olmos, una zona agrícola de bastante movimiento comercial que se encuentra situada en la provincia de Lambayeque, a más de una hora y media de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Desde hace 6 años, cuenta con una pequeña bodega situada en su domicilio donde vende víveres y artículos de primera necesidad. Se encuentra casi 30 minutos del pueblo de Olmos. Por la lejanía, el negocio de Santos es una de las pocas bodegas en su región. Por ende cuenta con una clientela establecida y fiel y logra una buena margen de ganancia. Desea ampliar su negocio con la compra de más mercadería como arroz, azúcar, y aceite. Con la inversión de su crédito, podrá incrementar sus ingresos y mejorar la calidad de vida para ella y su esposo.

Ha tenido otros préstamos y cumplió con sus obligaciones en una manera puntual. Se ha visto que ha crecido su negocio porque cuando comenzaba solo vendía gaseosas y golosinas. Ahora está comercializando arroz, azúcar, aceites, fideos, leches, etc. Santos se siente satisfecha por la confianza que los prestamistas de Kiva y Edpyme Alternativa han depositado en ella.
