A loan of $1,075 helped to buy ingredients, such as flour and sugar, to make the food she sells.


Maximiliana's story

46-year-old Maximilina is married and lives in her own home together with her husband and their four children. Her business is selling food. She makes her sales outside her home and her customers are mainly neighbors. She also has the support of her husband. Maximilina has been in her business for around 5 years. She likes it because it has enabled her to help out financially with the household expenses. This is Maximilina's first loan from Kiva and she feels grateful for the financial support that she is receiving. She will use her 3,000 soles to buy ingredients such as flour, sugar and lemons which she needs to make the food she sells.
