Kiva :: Our April Entrepreneur

Here at Mash we're a hard working bunch, but we still wouldn't be where we are if it wasn't for the occasional helping hand. Through KIVA, we are given the opportunity to extend this friendly philosophy by providing loans to entrepreneurs around the world. If you would like to know more about the initiative, check out here.

Here at Mash we’re a hard working bunch, but we still wouldn’t be where we are if it wasn’t for the occasional helping hand. Through KIVA, we are given the opportunity to extend this friendly philosophy by providing loans to entrepreneurs around the world.

Each month we loan a substantial amount to one person looking to expand his or her business, and for April 2012 we have chosen Eugenia from Huancayo, Peru.  A wife and mother of two children, Eugenia is at an age when most of us would be planning our upcoming retirement. She, however, is in the midst of expanding her business! Not only does Eugenia clean at the local city hall and raise livestock and crops to sell at the market, but she also makes brilliant ornaments made of beautiful flowers to sell in the city centre. Once Eugenia has raised some extra cash through KIVA, she will be putting the money towards additional flowers to help her business grow and tuck some savings away in the bank. A hard working woman holding down four jobs and raising a family? Here’s to that.
