Anita's story

Anita is 55 years old. She is divorced and so has had to prosper on her own, alongside one of her daughters. Anita makes a living selling cosmetics and, on occasion, selling clothes. Five years ago, following her separation with her husband, Anita started the business in order to improve her quality of life and to generate her own income. It is with this work that she and her daughters have moved forward in life. In the beginning, this was all very difficult and Anita did not have the money to buy products and she did not have a place for the business. Thanks to her efforts and her family's support, though, she managed to start her own business. Anita is enterprising and hopes her business will prosper and expand enough to provide her customers with better products of good quality. This is Anita's first loan with Kiva and she is very grateful for this financial opportunity. The loan will be useful as she carries on her work. Anita is applying for 1300 Nuevo Soles to buy cosmetic products, such as talcum powder, colognes and more.
