A loan of $300 helped to buy ingredients like rice and oil to prepare her meals.


Norma's story

Norma is 42 years old, married and lives in her own home with her husband and 14 year old son. Norma sells regional foods. She prepares it at home and sells it outside her house. She does this by herself. She feels her business is quite good as she manages to sell all her product and is left with a profit. Norma decided to start this business as it was necessary to have an additional income to support her husband. Seeing the positive results from her business, she would like to open a restaurant in the future, as she likes to cook. This will be her second loan with Kiva. She is happy she can count on this support to advance her business. She will invest the 800 PEN ($300) to buy the ingredients she needs to prepare her meals.
