Julieta's story

Julieta is 22 years old and married with 2 children. She has a kiosk that she started in 2015, where many people come to buy goods every day.

Running her business has made Julieta independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family.

She would like a loan of USD 600 from KIF to help improve her kiosk.

She plans to use this loan to buy additional supplies such as cigarettes, coffee, sugar, salt, milks, eggs, soft drink, hard drink, water, fish and slippers. She would also like to buy a refrigerator to keep drinks cold.

Julieta hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity. And her husband is a teacher.
