A loan of $525 helped a member to buy shoes and cosmetics to sell.

Duo Noveno San Pedro Group's story

Duo Noveno San Pedro.

Doña Maria del Carmen is 22 years old and has two children. For the past three years, she has made a living by selling shoes and cosmetics. She tells us that she struggles for a better life and she relies on her husband's help. He works, but the money he earns is not enough. So, she started her business due to this necessity. Thanks to God, she received this business opportunity, which has allowed her to provide for her daughter.

She offers the product she sells in factories where many people work. She does not have enough of what she sells because the people buy a lot and she has a large demand from her customers. For this reason, she is asking for this loan to buy more merchandise of shoes and cosmetics. She hopes that Kiva can help her with the loan she is requesting, as well as the other member who makes a living by selling basic products and cosmetics.
