A loan of $1,475 helped to buy a refrigerator.

Antonia's story

Antonia started out selling tea from a small kiosk in the town of Chimoré. Little by little she began attracting customers with her tea and coffee service. Over time, she has added small bakery equipment and received training from NGO's in the preparation of pies, meat pies, cakes, etc. She is anxious to increase production to be able to meet the demand of her customers, so she wants to take advantage of the opportunity to buy more equipment and produce more volume. The KIVA loan she receives will be of great help because now Antonia will have a refrigerator to help grow and expand her business.
