A loan of $1,075 helped to buy slippers, sandals and shoes.


Julia's story

Julia is a member of the Ccori Soncco Communal Bank, she is 54 years old, a mother to 5 children, the oldest is 33 and the youngest is 18 years old.

Julia has sold shoes, slippers and sandals wholesale and retail for about 4 years.

The problem that she has in her business is that for some months sales have been low, for example, from December to July she sells very well but the rest of the months there are very few orders for shoes. Julia mentions that Finca Perú (Kiva’s field partner) is an institution that loans money to women not caring if they are professionals or not and thanks to the training she has become a mO. optimistic and tenacious woman.

The loan that Julia is asking for will be used to buy shoes, and sandals of different styles and prices.

Julia’s dream is to have her own stall where she can offer her products since now she distributes them and leaves them on credit to her customers when she sells them house to house.
