A loan of $600 helped to buy products such as rice, sugar, milk, spices, and more.

Zeny's story

Zeny, 41 years old, lives with her husband and her only daughter in her own house that she bought some years ago.

Her economic activity is focused on the sale of food. She works from home and has more than four years in this business. It was her husband who gave her the initiative to open a grocery store as her neighborhood did not have this type of business so she started this activity. At first she had problems because her house was not appropriate for this type of business but later she was able to fix the problem succeeding in having a good space.

This is her first loan with Kiva, and she is grateful for the financial help given, which will help her improve her business and increase her sales. Zeny will invest the 1500 soles in the purchase of products such as rice, sugar, milk, spices, and more.
