Eugenia's story

Eugenia, 41, is married to Roberto and has 3 children. They live together in an adobe house, where they share experiences. Eugenia sells a variety of food items such as sodas, cookies, and candies from a space on the first floor of her house. She worked in the fields at different farming tasks before she was able to get money together to start her current business. As a dedicated mother, her motivation has been growing her business. Her long-term goal is to expand and open a bigger grocery store. This is her second loan cycle with Kiva. She is grateful for the opportunity and promises to make her payments on time. She needs S/.2000 nuevos soles to buy more candies, chocolates, cookies, and ice cream for her business.
