Vilma's story

Vilma, 48, is a mother who lives with her husband and 12-year-old son in Cayaltí district, an agricultural and commercial area located about an hour from the city of Chiclayo. She sells basic items, groceries, vegetables, and meats from a small store in her house. Here she and her son wait attentively and politely on their customers. The business helps her to contribute with her husband to supporting the family.

Vilma is applying to Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 3000 nuevos soles to buy more stock for her store and increase her sales. This is her first loan cycle with Kiva, and she thanks the institution in advance for its support.
