Eliana's story

Eliana, 45, is married to Aliardo and they have a 14-year-old son and all live together in their own house. Eliana sells cosmetics which she buys by catalogue and offers to her friends, relatives and acqaintances on a cash or credit basis. She has been in business for 11 years and so far has been making a good profit. In this line of work she is able to manage her free time while obtaining enough income to help her husband.

She also sells children's clothing depending on the season. This is her first Kiva loan and she is very grateful for the financial support she is receiving to help her prosper. She will use the 800 PEN to buy cosmetics and children's clothing.
