A loan of $300 helped to buy more food products to sell in his store.

Hiro's story

Hiro,19, is single and lives with his parents in their house. For two years, Hiro has sold food items from his shop located in the house. He usually works alone, but sometimes his brother helps him. He likes his job because he works in the comfort of his home, and the income it generates helps pay household expenses.

He plans to continue the business and make it grow. This is his first loan cycle with Kiva, and he hopes that the collaboration will allow him to firm up his plans. He will use the loan of 800 nuevos soles to buy more food products to stock his store with merchandise his customers want.
