A loan of $450 helped to buy drinks in bulk.


Antonia's story

Antonia is a 64-year old woman who is divorced and has two daughters, aged 24 and 22, and a grandson. They all live comfortably in their own house. Antonia sells soft drinks and has a fridge in her house. This way she can keep the products at the temperature desired by the consumers, who buy the drinks to take away. She has been working on this activity for over three years and counts on the help of her daughter to sell the products to clients.

She decided to start this activity to cover her household expenses once her partner left them. This activity does not generate losses as the product she sells is highly consumed and always has demand. This is why she has plans to grow her business.

This is her forth loan with Kiva and she feels grateful for the support received to get ahead. She commits to repay as scheduled and plans to use the 1,200 nuevos soles to buy soft drinks in different flavors and brands in bulk.
