Nilda, 36, is a hardworking woman. She lives with three of her four children in the house she bought two years ago. She makes a living selling groceries. She opens the doors of her store in the morning to serve the area's inhabitants. She closes the store after a few hours and goes out to the fields to sell mainly soft drinks and juice. "It is a stable source of income for me, because I found a way to continue making sales. After 8 in the morning, the people in my town go out to work on their crops and they are not at home. Therefore, I am taking advantage of this opportunity to keep selling," she says.

She would now like to increase her working capital in order to sell a larger variety of products. This is her second Kiva loan. She is grateful for the financial support she has received, because it allows her to continue moving forward. She is also committed to paying her installments on time. Nilda will invest these 2,500 Peruvian soles in the purchase of rice and sugar, as well as wholesale soft drinks and sweets.
