A loan of $1,300 helped to buy wood wholesale.

Solei's story

Solei, 37, is the single mother of a 16-year-old daughter who lives with her in her own house.

Solei's job is buying and selling wood. She goes to the big timber merchants on the outskirts of the city to get good-quality wood at low prices. She converts the wood into planks to sell it much more easily. She has customers who always order merchandise from her. When she doesn't have what they need, she doesn't hesitate to go elsewhere to get what her customer is requesting.

She has been in this business for two years and everything is going wonderfully. There are many positive aspects of her job, such as being able to organize her time to do other activities at the same time she's generating an income for her family.

This is her seventh Kiva loan. She's grateful for the financial support she has received so she can get ahead, and she promises to make her payments punctually.

With the requested amount of 3500 soles [PEN] she'll buy wood wholesale for her business.
