Nolvia Cecilia's story

Nolvia has always worked as a packager in duty free region. This is the only way that they are able to improve the administration of the household expenses. Her husband works as an agricultural engineer. Their two children are growing and they attend school.

Currently Nolvia has become an Avon representative in order to generate another source of income to improve the condition of their home. She sells cosmetics, clothing, and shoes to her work colleagues, as well as from her house. She takes orders and she has merchandise in stock as well. Her goal is to increase her sales.

They have also made some home improvements, adding new bedroom divisions, and she also managed to finish building the front wall with the help of four past loans from Afodenic (Kiva Field Partner). This has proven to be a great benefit for the well-being of the family. She will invest this loan in the purchase of new clothing for ladies, men, and children, and to purchase shoes and cosmetics in larger quantities. She will also fill the orders placed by her clients. She will continue one with her small business and she hopes to strengthen it in the near future.
