As part of Mash’s corporate social responsibility initiative, we provide sustainable loans through KIVA to aid entrepreneurs in developing countries.

For the July Entrepreneur of the month, we have chosen Alicia Margarita Ruiz Aguuirre, from Puno, Peru.

Alicia is a 58 year old, single mother to one son. She studied up to secondary school.

She has been building her business for the last nine years. She used her first loan to buy a pair of pigs. She also sells food, clothes, and soft drinks and sells livestock. So very much, products in general.

She will use this new loan funded by Mash, to buy livestock and assorted merchandise like soft drinks, footwear and jackets. She tells us that sometimes she sells second hand clothing. Her son helps her in the business. Her dream is to have a little house and general store in Puno or Pomata.

What she likes about working with Kiva is the chats because she says the women are good at improving in business and she also likes the guarantee and mutual collaboration the members provide for each other.

We are delighted to be helping Alicia achieve her goals.
