Marcelina's story

Marcelina is 52 yars old and is a single mother of three children who live in her wooden house. Marcelina works in selling a variety of garments in a stall within a market in her region. To keep her business supplied she needs to travel to the capital of her region to acquire diverse garments, primarily for women.

One of her primary long-term goals is to work with the highest motivation possible and complete one of her dreams which consists of constructing a home with a higher quality base. This is her third loan with Kiva and she is very grateful to be able to count on the financial assistance she receives.

She hopes to count on 2,000 nuevos soles and invest them in buying blouses, stylish polos and other garments of high demand in her region.
