A loan of $500 helped purchase more clothing to sell.


Zarela's story

Zarela is 34 years old. She lives with her three-year-old son Mauricio. She is an enterprising mother who has sold clothing for 10 years in the city of Puno. She hopes to progress and forge a better future for her little one, in whom she has put all her hope.

Zarela has always been a hardworking woman, enjoying her work. Through her work she is able to offer her son well-being and comfort, and it is because of this she works so hard. Thanks to her effort, she has made good profits. The difficult thing is that she spends so much time selling, she is unable to spend as much time as she would like with her little boy.

Zarela is asking for her second loan from Kiva partner Microfinanzas Prisma. With the requested money, she will buy more merchandise to sell during the holidays, when sales are very good.
