Gina's story

Gina is a single 31-year-old mother and lives with her two children, who are age 6 and 15. They live comfortably in her grandmother's home. She sells cosmetics, which she purchases from catalogs and then sells to her friends and neighbors. In parallel to this, for the last two years she has been making crafts by hand with the help of her mother. She likes her business since it generates income that she needs in order to support he children, and it also allows her to set her own schedule so she can tend to her children.

She reports that she has a good business since it is profitable and requires little investment. Having seen good results, she wishes to expand and begin selling women's shoes.

This will be her second loan with Kiva, and she is grateful for the financial support which enables her to continue in her business activities. She promises to make her loan repayments in a punctual manner. With the sum she is seeking, 800 nuevos soles, she will purchase more cosmetics, as well as materials for making her crafts.
