A loan of $375 helped to purchase beauty supplies for her store.

Rosario's story

Rosario is 33 years old and lives in a home she owns with her husband and daughter. Rosario works offering cell phone services, calls, and refills.

She recently decided to start a new business selling beauty supplies, but she needed capital in order to get started. She was able to set up her business with the income she gets from the phone refills and her savings, and now she has a variety of products in stock. Her effort has allowed her to get ahead. With her experience and the customer base that she has, she has currently seen her business improve and generate more income. In the future she hopes to use the profit she makes to open a store to sell only beauty supplies and phone refills, in order for her sales and income to increase.

This is her first Kiva loan. She is very grateful for this opportunity to obtain a line of credit, which will be very helpful to her in improving her business. This time she will request 1,000 soles, which she will invest in purchasing beauty supplies to stock her business and stimulate her sales.
