A loan of $1,350 helped to buy exercise machines.

Margarita's story

Margarita is 51 years old, and a very hard-working and enterprising woman. She lives in a rented house with her partner and their two children. Margarita owns a gym that her children run. But she also has a mototaxi, which she rents out to a person to operate. This way she receives extra income to improve her quality of life and that of her family.

Before having the work she does, Margarita had financial problems because she didn't have a steady job nor her own home, so expenses exceeded her income. That is why she experienced many privations. But thanks to her effort she was able to move forward in life, and now has a stable business with which to support her family.

This is Margarita's first loan with Kiva, and she is very grateful for the financial assistance received, which will be a great help to her in improving her small business. Margarita will use the 3500 soles to purchase exercise machines.
