A loan of $1,550 helped to buy spare parts for her motorcycles, as well as soft drinks.

Bonifacia's story

Bonifacia, 51 years old, is married and has an adult, independent son. She has her own house where she lives with her husband. Bonifacia's work consists of renting motorcycles out to a variety of clients for transportation. She also buys wholesale soft drinks, and has a space in her house where she sells them. She has worked in this business for more than 9 years and does it alone since her husband is involved in other business. She considers her business profitable because of the demand she has and the good earnings it leaves her.

She likes her work now that she has time to do household activities, she has good clients and her earnings are good. This is her 7th loan with Kiva, happy it is going very well because she completes all of her loan payments. With the amount requested of 4000 soles, she will buy spare parts for her motorcycles and wholesale carbonated drinks, of both glass and disposable containers. Then she will have a larger quantity of merchandise in stock and will avoid wasting time traveling daily to make her purchases.
