Dora's story

Dora, 47 years old, is married to Leni and together they have 2 children aged 25 and 23; together they live in their own home. Dora's work consists of selling food products such as rice, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, oil, vegetables, etc... She operates this business from her home, and attends to it everyday at all times. She has had this business for 11 years and she manages it on her own; fortunately she has been doing well. What she enjoys about her work is that she has time to fulfill other possible activities. Fortunately, she has good revenues since they always have clients, thanks to the variety of products that she offers and due to the fact that she has the only store in the area.

This is her fourth loan with Kiva and she is very grateful for the loan opportunities that they offer and the financial backing that she needs to continue getting ahead, which is the reason why she is committed to succeed with her business. With the requested amount of 1500 soles, she will purchase merchandise such as rice, sugar, bread, eggs, milk, oil, vegetables, etc...
