A loan of $550 helped to buy fish wholesale.

Luz's story

Luz is 34 years old and is a single mother with a daughter she lives with in a house they own. Luz makes a living by selling fresh fish, and she has ten years of experience with this work. Initially she helped her sister-in-law with this type of business, but upon seeing that it was profitable, she gathered capital to become independent and form her own business. She didn't have any problems with the business, as she already had the necessary knowledge. Today she works with customers she already knows and who always buy her products.

This is her first loan with Kiva and she feels grateful for the financial support that she is receiving to get ahead. She also commits to making her payments in a punctual manner. The requested amount of 1,500.00 Peruvian nuevos soles is designated for buying fresh fish.
