A loan of $400 helped to purchase food products such as rice, sugar, oil, and other items.

Carolina's story

Carolina is 30 years old. She is married to Vidal and they have two children who they care for in the house they have rented for ten years. Carolina has sold food products in her house for eight years. She is known among her neighbors who purchase her food products every day to make their daily meals. Her primary advantage is offering products at low prices since she purchases at wholesale, which allows her to reduce her price per unit.

This is her first loan with Kiva. She is very happy with the financial support she will receive to continue with her plans. She promises to make her repayments on time.

Carolina will invest this 1000 soles in the purchase of staple products for her grocery store such as sacks of rice and sugar, boxes of oil, and other items.
