Carla's story

Carla, age 39, is a very happy, dynamic, and enterprising woman. She is married to Julio, who drives a mototaxi. She and Julio live together with their five children in Carla's mother's home. Carla sells candy outside of a daycare centre located near her home. She has been doing this for six years, and one of her children helps her with the business. She likes that her job allows her to have an income to cover the household costs and gives her time to see her children. This will be her third loan with Kiva, and she is very grateful for the financial support that she is receiving to move forward with her business. With this loan of 1000 nuevos soles, she will purchase candies such as cookies, caramels, and chocolates.
