A loan of $900 helped to buy foods and soft drinks.


Ana's story

Ana is 43 years old and married to Carlos. She lives with her two children in the house she owns. Ana works selling foods in a part of her father's house reserved for this purpose. She also sells soft drinks and natural fruit juices. What she likes most about her work is that she is able to help with the expenses of the family. Her husband works as a bricklayer and his salary is not enough to cover all the expenses. This is why she wants to improve the infrastructure of her restaurant, thus increasing her profits and being able to pay for her oldest son's higher education. This is her second loan with Kiva, and she is grateful for the support she has received. She promises to make her repayments in time. Ana will use the 2500 PEN to buy ingredients such as rice, sugar, milk, etc. for the preparation of her foods. If the money is enough she will also buy soft drinks in bulk.
