A loan of $450 helped to buy wholesale soft drinks and ice cream.

July's story

July, 42, is married to Julio and has two children, ages 8 and 18. They live together in their own house.

July makes a living selling cold beverages, such as soft drinks and beer, and ice cream from recognized brands which is prepared with tropical fruits. She has a refrigerator to display the drinks and ice creams she has for sale. She likes her work because it allows her to be in her home and to support her family with the household expenses. She also plans to expand her business and put up a food store.

This is her eighth loan with Kiva. She is very happy to know that she has financial support, which allows her to continue moving ahead with her business. With the requested amount of 1200 Peruvian soles, she will buy wholesale soft drinks and ice cream.
