A loan of $725 helped to buy carbonated beverages.

Lucia's story

Lucia, 29, is married to Enrique, who's independent and the father of her child, 4. They live together in their own house.

Lucia works selling carbonated beverages of various flavors and brands. She has a refrigerator in her house where she keeps her products cold, just as her customers like because it's a hot area. She serves her customers very pleasantly.

She started this business more than seven years ago because she needed to have her own income and help her husband with the household expenses. This way they'll get ahead more quickly.

This is her first Kiva loan. She's grateful for the financial support she's receiving to get ahead and promises to make her payments punctually.

With the requested amount of 2,000 nuevos soles [PEN] she'll buy more beverages in a variety of brands and flavors. She'll look for good prices for her purchases so she'll earn more profit.
