Haydee's story

Haydee is a 35-year-old woman who lives with her husband Eduardo and their 3 children in their house built out of adobe. Haydee works in agriculture. For this reason she owns a field of 2 hectares where she has plantings of organic cacao which she works together with her husband managing to obtain good earnings from the final sale of the dried cacao pods. She decided 5 months ago to put a small spot on the corner of her house dedicated to the sale of food in the evenings and at the moment it is well received among those that come to be her customers who are mainly drivers and passengers form a nearby bus stop. She says that her guests prefer her because she carries out the preparation of the food instantly and with suitable conditions.

This is her first loan with Kiva and she feels grateful for the financial support that she is receiving in order to get ahead. She is also committed to paying her installments in a punctual manner. On this occasion she wants to have 2,000 nuevos soles (PEN) to make an improvement to the roof of her house for which the purchase of wood and corrugated metal roofing is necessary.
