A loan of $825 helped to buy sugar, meat, and rice.


Renee's story

Renee is a member of the Florecer Community Bank. She is 26 years old and has been with Kiva partner FINCA Peru for five years. Renee sells candy and groceries from a cart located at the door to her house. She remembers that the first loan she received was used to buy candy. That was all she sold at the beginning. Since then her business has expanded, and she now sells snow cones too. Her biggest goal is to finish building her house. She is grateful to her Community Bank which has taught her how to save, how to set goals, and how to reach them. With the money from the loan, Renee plans to buy sugar, meat, and rice.
