Gregoria is an honest person, cheerful and very hardworking. She started her business to help her husband, who she she lived with at the time, with household expenses. Their 2 daughters were studying and they wanted to help them finish their university degrees. In March of 2002 she started on her own initiative to sell perfume, but it did not work out well with several clients. For that reason she decided it would be better to sell clothes and shoes to her friends and neighbors and that has gone well. Since then her business has grown little by little, and her last loan from KIVA helped a great deal, making it possible for her to buy merchandise.

Gregoria needs to borrow $750 which she will repay in 6 months. Again, she will invest in seasonal clothes and shoes which will allow her to have a better selection for the coming end-of-year season. In this way she will be able to satisfy her customers.

Gregoria es una persona honesta, alegre y muy trabajadora. Inició el negocio para ayudar a su esposo, que en ese entonces vivía, con los gastos de la casa ya que sus 2 hijas estaban estudiando y querían apoyarlas para que terminaran una carrera universitaria. Comenzó en Marzo de 2002 cuando por iniciativa propia empezó a vender perfumes pero le quedaron mal varios clientes, por lo que se decidió mejor a vender ropa y calzado entre sus amistades y vecinos y le fue mejor. Desde entonces, su negocio ha ido creciendo poco a poco y el último crédito que recibió a través de KIVA le sirvió muchísimo para poder comprar mercancía.

Ella necesita un préstamo por US $750 que pagara en 6 meses para invertir de nuevo en ropa y calzado de temporada que le permita tener un mejor surtido para esta época de fin de año que se acerca y de este modo satisfacer a sus clientes.
