Dora's story

Dora is 63 years old. She is separated from the father of her children. She lives in her own house with two of her children, aged 25 and 24 years old. Dora sells food products from a store that is located in her house. She treats her customers kindly, the majority of whom are her neighbors. So she can become known by them and gain their loyalty. She has run this business for more than five years now and up to now can count on the help of her children who wait on customers when she is out of the house. She considers this a profitable business for the revenues brought in and the demand she has had right from the start.

This will be Dora's second loan from Kiva. With the 3500 PEN requested she will buy food products like rice, sugar, canned goods etc to stock her store. She is happy to be able to count on this financial assistance as she feels assured that she can continue to move forward with her business.
