Katerin
Katerin is 18 and lives with her husband, David, in their own home. She has a small grocery store in a very friendly environment on the first floor of her home. She opened the business about a year ago and saw it was as good a way to earn an income as in the field. She said that she decided to sell groceries because she felt that working in the field was more complicated for her since she wanted to give her husband as much attention as possible. She lives in an area somewhat far from the district capital, so the groceries and other products she sells are in high demand, among which are sugar, rice, eggs, canned goods, snacks and personal-care products. What she likes most about her job is that it allows her to meet and get to know a lot of people. This is her first Kiva loan and she feels grateful to receive financial support to help her make headway. She is requesting the loan to purchase wholesale supplies for her business, including primary-need products like rice, sugar, grains, canned goods and other items.

Katerin tiene 18 años y vive junto a su esposo David en su casa propia. Katerin tiene una pequeña tienda de productos comestibles en un ambiente muy acogedor del primer piso de sus vivienda, Lleva con esta labor casi un año desde su apertura y vio que es una buena manera de obtener ingresos así como en el campo. Comenta que optó por el negocio de productos ya que sentía que el campo era una actividad muy complicada para ella y porque deseaba darle toda la atención posible a su esposo. Al ubicarse en una zona algo lejana a la capital de su distrito los víveres y otros productos que vende tienen buena demanda siendo uno de ellos el azúcar, arroz, huevos, conservas de pescado enlatado entre otros además de golosinas y productos para el cuidado personal. Lo que mas le agrada de su trabajo es que le permite conocer muchas personas y hacerse muy querida a la vez.
Este es su primer préstamo con Kiva y se siente agradecida de recibir un apoyo financiero que le permita seguir adelante. En está ocasión desea contar con 2,000 nuevos soles para comprar mercadería al por mayor para su negocio y donde esta incluido los víveres de primera necesidad como sacos de arroz, azúcar, cereales, conservas enlatadas entre otros.
