A loan of $300 helped to buy carbonated beverages wholesale.

Evelith's story

Evelith, 27, is a single mother of two children with whom she lives in her parents' house.

Evelith sells cold beverages in a variety of brands and flavors. She has a refrigerator in a small space in her house, where she serves her customers in a friendly and cordial manner. She started more than four years ago with her own capital and currently has the support of her parents, who tend to the business when she's not home.

She likes her job because it allows her to stay busy and have an income to pay for her household expenses. She chose this business because she saw little competition in the area. Her profits give her emotional and financial peace. In light of the good results she's getting, she has plans to improve and set up her business and buy herself another refrigerator.

This is her fourth Kiva loan and she's grateful for the financial help she has received because it allows her to get ahead with her business. In addition, she promises to make her payments punctually.

With the requested amount of 800 nuevos soles [PEN] she'll buy beverages of various brands and sizes, looking for low prices with wholesale purchases.
