Alejandra
Alejandra is 45 years old and is a friendly, hardworking woman. She is a mother to 3 children, who are already independent. For this reason, she lives alone with her husband in their own house. Alejandra's work involves selling fruit drinks such as passion fruit, oranges, mandarines, etc. Times were tough for her for a long time due to the presence of terrorism in her city which prevented her from having an income. This led her to decide to start working selling fruit drinks (which was 10 years ago).

She likes what she does because it gives her time to take care of things at home. In addition, since starting her business, her financial situation has been improving and her income has improved. She wants to continue to grow and for this reason she wants to increase her sales. This is her first experience with Kiva and she is grateful for the financial support that she receives so she can progress. In addition, she promises to make her payments on time.

With the requested loan of 1,000 sols, she will buy fruit such as passion fruit, papaya, and others. She will also buy tables and chairs to better serve her customers.
