A loan of $600 helped to buy fresh fish.


Adilia's story

Adilia, 45, is married with Alejandro who works in transportation and is the father of her children. Together, they live in the house she bought with her husband's help. Adilia sells fresh fish, which she buys in the local port and then sells from her spot in the city market. She caters to her clients in a kind and attentive manner.

She started more than 5 years ago with her own capital. Before starting with her business, she suffered many difficulties due to lack of a job. She likes having her own business because she has own income and can help her partner with the house expenses. She wants to increase her income and continue growing, eventually opening an automotive lubricants store in her house.

This is her 4th loan with KIVA. She's very thankful for its aid in helping her achieve her plans. She's requesting 1500 nuevos soles (PEN) to buy her merchandise, in this case, fresh fish and other materials to sell.
