Another Kiva loan to Julia
I made a loan today to Julia Carlotain Peru. She is 46, married, and has three children. The children are 22, 21, and 16. The older children are married; the last one is studying English.
Julia started selling sandwiches, but that was not good because there was so much competition in the area where she sold. Her sister got her into selling beauty products by catalog. She started with one line, and now she sells for three beauty companies.
Since she started with Finca, she has learned that every woman has the opportunity to advance.
She needs a loan for 1,200 PEN to buy beauty products by catalog and be able to stock her inventory.
Julia’s dream is to have a bazaar style bookstore.
I'm off to Canada for a week or so. All the best.
