Aleyda Patricia's story

Aleyda, a resident of El Transito, a town located in the outskirts of León, sells basic grains, cleaning supplies and cosmetics. She used her first Kiva loan to buy cosmetics, basic grains, perfume and cleaning supplies. This investment allowed her to improve sales, stock her business and opened the opportunity to win over new customers. Because of this she’s asking for the loan to buy oatmeal, soup, detergent, candy, bread, juice and soft-drinks that are products her customers request daily and that she mustn’t fail to have. Besides, she now has the goal of varying her products and sell those most requested by customers to gradually improve her business.
