Alejandrina
Alejandrina, 39, is a tenacious and hardworking woman who has a strong desire to get ahead. She is married to Rider, who works in river transportation and is the father of their 3 children. They work hard to get ahead and provide their children with a better quality of life. They live together comfortably in their own house, which they bought a short time ago.

Alejandrina has a business selling groceries and staple consumer products such as rice, sugar, cooking oil, preserves, and other products. She has a store that is set up in her home, where she tends to her customers in a kind and cordial manner. Her customers are also mostly her neighbors.

Alejandrina started buying and selling in small quantities with her own capital more than 14 years ago, and her children are currently helping her with her sales.

Before she had this business she used to have a lot of financial problems, because her husband did not earn enough. Also, she wanted to feel like a productive person and support her partner with the household expenses. Now, seeing the results that she continues to have with her business, she wants to continue to stock her business with more products.

This is her 4th loan with Kiva, and she is happy to know that she has financial support to carry out her plans. At this time, she is requesting 1,500 Peruvian soles so that she can buy basic consumer products such as rice, milk, sugar, cooking oil, and other products to stock her store. This way, she will be able to keep her customer's preference.
