A loan of $750 helped to buy cosmetics for her business.


Ximena's story

Ximena is a single mother with two children. She lives in a family member's home in the city of El Alto. Ximena only studies up to secondary school and makes a living selling personal hygiene products and cosmetics Tuesday-Friday in the El Alto markets. She needs this loan to buy varied wholesale products, especially perfumes. Ximena's dream is to become a national distributor of a wide variety of cosmetics. This is her first loan that she will be taking out through Kiva.
