Lady's story

Lady is a friendly and happy 36-year-old woman. She lives in a house she owns with her husband Luís, who works at a company as a tractor driver. She has three children aged 21, 14, and 4 years respectively. Lady's work consists of selling carbonated beverages like soft drinks of different flavors, beers of various brands, and sweets like cookies, caramels and gum, among other things. She has a refrigerator to keep her drinks cold. She has had this business in a space inside her home for 3 years. She started this business to help her husband with their living expenses.

In the future she thinks she will rent a commercial space in a good location to sell sweets wholesale. This will be her 4th loan with Kiva and she feels very grateful for the financial support that she receives to continue with her work. With the requested amount of 1,000 Peruvian nuevos soles, she will buy carbonated beverages like beers of different brands and soft drinks of various flavors. She will also buy sweets like cookies, chocolates, caramels, etc.
