A loan of $925 helped to buy auto spare parts.


Benilda's story

Benilda, 31, is married to Rosendo who is a mechanic. They live comfortably in their own house. Benilda’s activity is selling auto spare parts like ball bearings, wheels and tires, among others. To do so she set up a sales space at home. She brings all her merchandise from another city and sells it at competitive prices earning her customers’ preference who then recommend her to other people thus expanding her clientele; her store is very busy. She also works repairing vehicles.

Seeing the good results her business is having she wants in future to increase the amount of merchandise and expand the locale. This is her second Kiva loan and she’s hoping for your collaboration so she can make her plans reality. On the other hand, she commits once more to make her payments punctually. She will use the requested 2,500 new soles to buy spare parts at wholesale in order to have stock on hand to sell.
