Reyna
Reyna, 35, is the mother of two children she lives with in a wooden house. When she was young and had her first daughter she left field work aside and she and her husband opened a grocery store at home so she could care for her little daughter while generating income of her own.

When she started out she set up some wood shelving and bought a little merchandise to try her luck and after a few days managed to sell it immediately. This motivated her to go into the business more and to stock it with more merchandise to improve her profits.

Her customers who are her neighbors and friends visit her day to day; she offers them basic staple food items like rice, flour and snacks, among others. To earn higher profits she buys the merchandise she offers at wholesale getting better prices and to keep her store stocked always.

This is her second Kiva loan and she feels grateful for the financial support she receives to continue forward; she commits to make her payments punctually. On this occasion, she’d like to have 2,000 new soles to buy sacks of rice and packages of soft-drinks which are in high demand in her business.

Reyna tiene 35 años de edad, es madre de dos hijos con quienes vive en una casa construida a base de madera. Cuando fue joven y al tener a su primera hija dejo de lado las actividades en el campo y junto a su esposo puso una tienda de abarrotes en su hogar para brindarle un cuidado adecuado a su pequeña hija y generar sus propios ingresos. Cuando comenzó colocó algunos andamios de madera y compró poca mercadería para probar suerte y tras algunos días logró venderlos inmediatamente siendo este el motivo para dedicarse más a este negocio y surtirlo con más mercadería para mejorar sus ganancias. Día a día recibe la visita de sus clientes quienes son vecinos y amigos suyos a quienes ofrece víveres de primera necesidad como arroz, azúcar, harina, golosinas, entre otros. Para obtener mejores ganancias compra la mercadería que ofrece al por mayor logrando obtener buenos precios y también mantener su negocio siempre abastecido. Este es su segundo préstamo con Kiva y se siente agradecida por el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante, además se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual. Desea en esta ocasión contar con 2,000 nuevos soles para la compra de sacos de arroz y paquetes de gaseosa que son de buena demanda en su negocio.
