A loan of $750 helped stock her business.


Tifany Briseth's story

Tifany is a hardwoking, enthusiastic 18-year-old woman. She lives in Ica, a province in southern Peru. In her leisure time, she likes listening to music because it helps her to rest a little. Although she only was able to complete fifth grade at high school, she would have liked to study Law.

After much effort and dedication, Tifany was able to start her souvenir business in one of the most visited touristic places in town. She works there for 5 hours on normal days and 8 hours on holidays in order to make a greater profit. She considers her business to be successful because it is located in a very transited zone and because she’s very kind to tourists.

Tifany is very grateful to Kiva loaners because thanks to their support she will be able to stock her business, offering more variety and receiving greater revenues. She will keep on working and struggling to achieve her greatest dream, which is to buy her own house.
