A loan of $375 helped to buy merchandise and repair a vehicle.


Marilia's story

Marilia lives in the city of Pucallpa. In order to get ahead she started a small business selling beauty products two years ago. This has given her the income to get ahead.

Marilia is pleased with the lenders from Kiva as thanks to their help she can buy more merchandise for her business like perfume, make-up and creams. As well she can do some maintenance on a small vehicle she uses to distribute her products to her clients. In this way she can server her clients better, increase her revenues and continue to struggle to fulfill her big dream, which is to have her own store and to be able to study at university.
