Nancy Yanine's story

Nancy is a young mother living with her minor daughter in one of the settlements that make up the rural zone of Tambogrande District, a tropical zone noted primarily for growing mangoes that are exported to other countries. The zone belongs to the Piura Region and currently only has electricity.

She’s been working selling clothes from place to place for several years and thanks to other previous loans financed through Kiva she was able to expand the business into selling plastic ware. She currently has quite a large clientele in the zone thanks to the effort she’s put into the work she does.

She was recently hired by a large agricultural estate specializing in fruit production where she works as a laborer. She works mornings in this place and spends afternoons in her original business.

Nancy is very grateful to people who have helped her through Kiva in past occasions and because of the good experience she had she’s now asking for a 2,000 new sol loan to buy more articles of clothing and plastic ware she can use to expand her business with. She gives thanks in advance to all the people who will support her on this occasion.
