A loan of $550 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Deniss's story

Deniss, 22, is an unassuming woman living with her husband, Aldo, and son, Jean Franco, who she cares for in a house she rented four years ago. Four years ago she opened a grocery store at home that’s centrally located in the city. She comments that she does quite well at work so much so that this is her home’s only one. “With profits I earn daily I’m able to feed my son,” she affirms. Her husband works in a bakery and with his earnings they are able to save and cover extra expenses. The school term is about to start so she needs to buy school supplies like notebooks, pencils and others to sell which is why she needs working capital.

This is her second Kiva loan and she’s grateful for this progress opportunity and promises to be punctual with her payments. Deniss will use the 1,500 soles to buy products like rice, sugar and milk, among others to stock her grocery store.
