Edith
Edith is 26 and married to Joel, 30. They have two children, ages 4 and 1. The family lives in a rented house in a rural area. Edith is thorough and has worked at farming, livestock raising, and commerce over the past 19 years. She most enjoys selling food items and set up a small store in her house, where she offers meats, vegetables, fruits, groceries, jams, beverages, and more.

She says, “My shop has grown steadily over the years, and I am happy with all that I have because I have worked hard to get it.” She goes to another city twice a week to buy merchandise. Business is steady, and Edith needs a loan to reach her goals. This is her second loan cycle with Kiva, and she is grateful for the funding she has received to continue her personal growth. She will use the 1600 soles to buy wholesale merchandise such as rice, sugar, and milk.
