Sarita
Sarita, 28, is a hard-working woman who has lived with her daughter for two years in a rented house. Her beginnings were not easy and she had to work long hours to save enough money to open her own business. She always had in mind a juice business because there was not one in her city. When she opened for business six years ago, she had no competition at all and sold very well. In that time she was able to save up and buy more items for her business such as chairs, cups, a juice machine and other decorations for her shop. "That makes it more elegant and comfortable.", she believed.

Now there are several juice bars nearby, but since she has been in business the longest she enjoys a loyal clientele and does not get discouraged. Quite the contrary, she wants to continue improving her customer service and employs young women to help out.

This her second Kiva loan and she is grateful for the financial support because it will allow her to earn more income. She is committed to paying the loan back on time.

Sarita will use the 2,000 PEN loan to buy fruits such as bananas and papaya by the crate; and if there is any money left over she will buy new chairs to remodel her juice bar.
