A loan of $375 helped to buy more diverse types of clothes to sell.


Jakeline's story

Jakeline is 26 years old and married. She lives in a rented house with her family, which includes her mother and sister. Jakeline sells clothes for women, men, and children. She sells from her house and in an itinerant manner at the markets. She has been in this business for five years, and she has her husband’s support.

She likes her business. It has generated good earnings for her, and it has given her a good knowledge of the business. This gives her the ability to manage her sales well. Therefore, she has plans to open a commercial store selling clothes.

This will be her first Kiva loan. She hopes for your collaboration in order to continue with her objectives. She will use the 1,000 soles to buy more diverse types of clothes to sell to her customers.
