A loan of $1,000 helped to buy peanuts and sugar to make candied, toasted, and ground peanuts and to improve her sales.


Miriam's story

Miriam is married and has two children. She lives in the Pasankeri neighborhood of the city of La Paz. She makes candied peanuts for a living, which she sells in the city's center.

Miriam is asking for a loan to buy ingredients (peanuts, sugar), as she has found other ways to sell peanuts (ground, toasted, candied, etc.) and she wants to try to increase her profits.

Miriam's dream is to have her own home as she currently rents.

This is the fourth time her loan has been channeled through Kiva.
