A loan of $375 helped to buy materials to expand the rooms that she rents out.

Rocio's story

Rocío, 44, is the mother of two daughters, whom she lives with in her own house, alongside her husband. Rocío rents out rooms in her house. She has been in this line of work for more than 10 years and she does it by herself because it is a simple job. What she likes most about her work is that it provides a good income. In addition, she is able to be at home with her daughters. She hopes in the future to be able to improve the condition of her house in order to be able to rent out her rooms at a better price. This is her fifth loan with Kiva. She is very glad to know that she has financial support, because it allows her to be calm and and move forward with her plans for her business. She also promises to make her payments on time. With the 1,000 soles that she has asked for, she will buy construction materials, since she will start expanding her rooms and improve their condition, in order to provide better service for her renters.
