A loan of $575 helped to pay for equipment repair and buy a new printer for her internet cafe.

Eusebia Del Rosario's story

Eusebia, 30, and her partner have 2 children. She loves her children--3- and 2-years old, respectively--and, at their young age, they still very much need their mother. They live in Ica, a city known for having a mild climate, no matter the season. Agriculture is a major employer here and local farmers export their crops to all parts of the world. Grapes, asparagus and butter beans are especially common crops. The area is also famous for Peru’s flagship drink, “pisco”. Peru is famous for its cuisine and one of Eusebia’s favorite dishes is “arroz con pollo”.

Eusebia says that she would have liked to study accounting, but she had to leave school early because her parents couldn’t afford her school fees. Even so, she has managed to build her own business, selling computer and internet services. She works 15 hours a day and sees up to 80 customers a day. She gets up very early to do housework so that she can put in a full day at her store. The business is successful, she says, because she provides a good service.

Eusebia is very grateful to Kiva lenders and she will use this loan to buy a new printer and repair the equipment she has. The investment will allow her to improve her service—by selling printed copies, for example—and, in turn, her income. She plans to save the extra income to fulfill her dream: “To grow my business”.
