Iris's story

Iris is 29 years old, married, and has two children who lives at home with her. Her main economic activity is business. She has a business dedicated to the sale of beauty products. She has been working in this business for 3 years and has a lot of experience.

It was her husband's idea for her to open a business. They were looking to earn more income to improve their family's quality of life because her husband's income didn't cover the household expenses. This is why they had to seek other ways to earn income, and this is how she began her business.

Thanks to the support of her family, she could move forward and now she has products stocked in her display case. With the earnings from her sales, she hopes to implement her business and, in the future, expand her business to increase her sales and earn more income.

This is her first loan with Kiva and she is thankful for the support that she receives to move forward. Additionally, she promises to make her payments on time.

She will invest the 2,000 soles that she has requested in the purchase of cosmetics like perfume, eyeliner, blush, and other things, and display cases to furnish her business.
