A loan of $2,000 helped a member to buy products for her general store.

Peniel 5, 6 Group's story

Flavia D. P. (far back, blue shirt) is a committed mother of four children. She runs her own general store business. She sells various items out of a catalog to her customers, ranging from clothing to bracelets to shampoo to household cleaning products. She has been selling these products for some time now, though she is just continuing on her second loan with Esperanza.

In order to see an example of how wonderful of a mother Flavia is, one has only to look at her four children. Her lone daughter is currently attending a university in San F. and one son is studying at a university in Cuba. Another son is currently a professor of education in the Dominican. Much of her extra profits go to supporting her children where she can encourage their education and studies.

Flavia takes the care and love she gives to her children to help them be successful, and has applied these principles to her business. While this business has been steadily growing little by little, Flavia would someday love to own her own store selling only shoes. She enjoys selling various products, but would like to specialize when her money allows.

Thank you for this Kiva loan to Flavia and other Peniel group members! It will go to support small business owners who are dedicated to growing their businesses to create better lives for themselves and their families.
