Blanca
Blanca, 42, is a single mother of two children and lives in a rented house. She runs a food stall at the market where she sells groceries. She used to do the same work on an informal basis, selling to other merchants in the area, but they all were transferred to the current town market. Eight years ago she started her activity and has always been able to count on support from her children who take care of the business.

Early in the morning is when she receives her customers, many of whom are mothers of families and restaurant managers who come seeking a wide variety of vegetables, cereals, canned goods and other groceries to prepare their different foods.

Blanca is happy with her work because she stays busy attending to the customers with whom she has much empathy. One of her long-term goals is to save enough money to open a mini-market in the city where she lives because it is growing constantly and she believes good quality and service are important tools for earning more income.

This is her first Kiva loan and she is very grateful for the financial support that will allow her to get ahead. She is requesting 3,000 PEN to stock her store with goods such as rice, sugar, salt, oil, etc.
