A loan of $375 helped to purchase sodas in a variety of brands and flavors..


Jemi's story

Jemi is 37 and married to Jesús, who has a job. They live with their two children, ages 15 and 20, in their home, where Jemi has a business selling soda. The couple purchased a refrigerator for soda storage, and are friendly and welcoming to customers who come into their home. Jemi likes her business as it provides her income to help her husband with household expenses and allows her to stay home to care for their two children. Jemi plans to expand the business and open a restaurant. Jesús is a talented cook and has observed that their home is in a good location for a restaurant.

This is Jemi's seventh loan with Kiva. She welcomes Kiva's support so she can keep pursuing her goals and is committed to making timely payments. Jemi will use the funds she's requesting, 1,000 new soles, for the wholesale purchase of sodas in a variety of brands and flavors. This new inventory will boost her income.
