A loan of $750 helped to purchase ingredients to prepare meals.


Dalila's story

Dalila is 51 years old. She lives in her own home with her husband, son and daughter-in-law. Dalila makes a living selling chickens, however three months ago she decided to start a new business selling cooked food because she is always looking for ways to increase her earnings. During the mornings, she accompanies her husband to the market where she helps him sell chickens and then she returns home to prepare meals to sell in the city. She always had the idea of establishing a business selling meals and thanks to her family’s support, she was able to move ahead and now has a better quality of life.

This is Dalila’s first loan from Kiva and she is very grateful for the economic support she has received and promises to be punctual with her repayments. She will use the sum of S/. 2,000 to buy ingredients to prepare meals and to buy chickens.
