Zenaida's story

Zenaida is 45 years old. She is marred to Juan Carlos who is 41. They live together with their two children in a home they own which is built of wood. For the past 15 years she has had a business selling replacement parts for various vehicles. She started the business at the prompting of her husband who from a very young age had worked as a mechanic. She manages the store where they sell various used parts and accessories for the work they do and thus is a very dynamic wife in their business. The business is very busy and she is very honorable in regards to the prices for her merchandise. As with any business it is necessary to invest in merchandise so that it is well stocked and attracts customers. For this reason she would like to stock her store. This is her second loan with Kiva and she is thankful for the financial support that she receives in order to get ahead. She promises to make her payments on time. For this loan she is requesting 3,000 new soles to purchase small parts at retail such as oils, bolts, etc.
