Fabiola Rocio's story

Fabiola is a 32-year-old mother of 2 children, 4 and 13, both her greatest pride. She lives with her kids in the city of Ica, in the south of Peru, an area known for its intense sun and the economic growth it has achieved in the last years.

Fabiola goes from house to house selling clothing and works about 5 hours a day. She has a diverse clientele, as she doesn’t always sell in the same areas. To generate other income, she also does seasonal manual labor on a farm.

With the help of the Kiva lenders, she’ll be able to develop her business, she’ll be able to buy new and improved merchandise, which will allow her clients a better variety. This will help her achieve her goal of duplicating her clientele in order to make her big dream come true: own a boutique.
