Telmira's story

Telmira is 69 years old. She is a hard-working and responsible woman. She lives with her husband and her mother-in-law, who is 104 years old. Telmira sells food products, and her own house is her workplace. She has been in this business for 3 years, since she formerly raised livestock, but for health reasons she had to leave this business and sell all her animals to dedicate herself to her store. Thanks to the strength and love of her family, she was able to move forward and establish herself in this area, since she wants to continue forward to have a much bigger store.

This is her first loan with Kiva, and she is very grateful for the financial support that she receives. Furthermore, she promises to make her payments punctually. With the 1000 PEN that she has applied for, she will buy more food products such as milk, sugar, rice, and preserved fish, among other items.
