Antonieta's story

Antonieta, who is 45 years old, is married to Gabino, who is 46 years old. They have three children, but they care for two of them in their home. Twenty years ago, she began working in agriculture. Her main crops consisted of fruits like pineapple and citrus fruits. Because Antonia constantly had to send money to the capital, where her daughter Felicita is studying accounting at a well-known university, she opened a small grocery store two years ago. She sells convenience items to the people in her area. She wants to continue to work hard to be able to bring her children forward. This is her third loan with KIVA and she feels developed and happy. She hopes to obtain the loan to continue working towards her goals and she promises to make her payments on time. With the requested loan of 1,000 nuevos soles, she will buy food products like rice, sugar, milk, etc.
