Antonieta Gladis
Antonieta belongs to the “Virgen Asunta de Racsa” communal bank in the city of Cusco, Perú. She’s a young mother of a seven-month-old daughter. She sells containers consisting of plastic fiber sacks used to store potatoes, fruit and grains. She started the business when she noticed that her fellow merchants in the market use these types of sacks very much to sell their products and she also takes advantage of the opportunity to sell other types of goods like soft-drinks, cookies and snacks. Antonieta’s dream is to see her daughter grow without the privations she had to go through, offering her a good education and someday pass down to her this business that she wants to make grow and develop.

On this occasion, Antonieta will use the requested loan to buy plastic fiber sacks at wholesale and burlap to meet demand and capitalize her activity. Antonieta is very grateful to KIVA for making it possible for her to give her family a better quality of life and helping her with the growth and strengthening of her business.
