Freda
Freda is twenty-one years old, is married to Jhover, and has a small daughter. Together, they live in a wooden house. From a young age, she was taught different agricultural tasks and work related to the production of cacao and organic coffee, this being the main livelihood of her family. As the years passed and she married her husband, she was able to become independent through the support of her parents; they offered her an inheritance of some plots of land for the maintenance of her own family.

She had been in this business for almost four years, but in having a young daughter, she decided to start a small business selling carbonated drinks, snacks, and other items, near a court where people play sports in her neighborhood. She hopes that her neighbors will be her main customer base. In this way, she hopes to put in the effort now in order to achieve a better quality of life in the long-run, her final objective being to open a larger foods store.

This is her first loan with Kiva, which she says is a good tool for work. She hopes that in her first opportunity, she will receive 1,500 soles, which she will invest in the purchase of snacks, crackers, rehydration beverages and carbonated drinks.
