Eldith's story

Eldith, 53, is a good, responsible woman who, as a single mother, educated her now grown, independent children. Two of her children still live with her in the house she owns. Eldith sells clothing and catalog cosmetics, especially colognes and perfumes. She goes out searching for friends, neighbors, and relatives who want to buy clothing, cosmetics, and perfumes. This has been her profession for about 10 years. She works alone and now she only wants to be able to pay her expenses, as her children help her out with some things. She likes that her job allows her time to rest and do things around the house. This will be her fifth loan cycle with Kiva, and she is grateful for the funding to keep going. She promises to makes her payments on time. She will use the loan of S/. 3000 to buy more catalog items like clothing, perfumes, colognes, and lipsticks.
