A loan of $400 helped purchase soft drinks.

Rosa's story

Rosa is 48 years old. She is a very hardworking, happy woman. She is married to Jose with whom she has 4 children ages 26, 21, 18 and 10. She owns her own home where she lives with her husband and children. Rosa works from home and sells soft drinks for a living. She has to buy blocks of ice and keep her beverages cold in a cooler because she doesn't have a refrigerator. She also sells homemade baked goods for her customers to eat with their beverages. She has been doing this on her own for 3 years since her husband has his own jobs.

What she likes about her job is that she also has time to take care of household responsibilities and that she has good customers. This will be her first loan through Kiva and she is very grateful for the opportunity to increase her capital and her income. With the S/.1000 soles requested she will buy more beverages in glass and disposable containers so she can stock a larger quantity of products and offer her customers more beverages.
