A loan of $375 helped to purchase merchandise.


Sonia's story

Sonia lives in the city of Pucallpa together with her two children, who she loves very much and for whom she works every day in her small business selling cosmetics, perfume, and other beauty products via catalogue. She has been doing this for five years and it gives her the income to support her family and get ahead in life.

Sonia is grateful to Kiva lenders, since thanks to their great support she will be able to purchase merchandise in order to stock her business and meet her clients’ orders. In this way, she will be able to improve her earnings and continue fighting to realise her great dream of seeing her children have careers.
