Ruth's business foresight and enterprising spirit have led her to construct a well in her home to store water and distribute it to her clients by way of a piping system.

As we all know, this liquid resource is of vital importance for the survival of humans and facing a continual lack of this service in the homes of many people around her community, Ruth decided to start this business.

The contribution that each member provides to carry out this activity is important.

Since establishing this business at home, demand has increased daily but with the moving of many families to the area, service has become inadequate.

Therefore, Ruth is asking for a 400 dollar loan which she promises to repay in 6 months. With the loan, she plans to buy more pipes and a water pump to facilitate distribution and be able to supply more families in less time.

Let's help Ruth's business be able to continue to contribute to the well-being of many families in Pucallpa.

Translated from Spanish by Alison Rives, Kiva Volunteer.

La visión de Ruth para los negocios y su espíritu emprendedor han hecho que lleve a cabo la construcción de un pozo en su domicilio para almacenar el agua y poder distribuirlo a sus clientes a través de redes tubulares.

Como todos sabemos este líquido elemento es de vital importancia para la sobrevivencia de los seres humanos y ante la falta continua de este servicio en los hogares de muchas personas dentro de su localidad, Ruth decidió iniciar este negocio.

La contribución que cada uno de los miembros brinda para desarrollar esta actividad es importante.

Desde que estableció este negocio en su hogar la demanda se incrementaba diariamente pero es con el asentamiento de muchas familias en esta localidad que el servicio se ha vuelto deficiente.

Por esta razón Ruth solicita un préstamo de 400 dólares y se compromete a retornarlos en un período de 6 meses; para poder comprar más tubos y una bomba de agua a fin de agilizar la distribución y poder abastecer a muchas familias en menor tiempo.

Hagamos que el negocio de Ruth siga contribuyendo con el bienestar de muchas familias en Pucallpa.
