Maximina
Maximina, 56, lives in the city of Chiclayo in the district of Jayanca with her husband and their five children, whom she loves and who are her main reason for living. She is a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who, alongside her husband, dedicates all of her efforts towards providing for her family.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and the need to begin working from a very young age to help her parents, Maximina was unable to finish her studies, which prevented her from taking on a professional degree. However, she would have liked to be a great business manager. In her free time, she likes to cook, and sometimes she cooks a delicious Lomo Saltado (a marinated sirloin dish) to share with her family.

On her own initiative and with plenty of effort and dedication, Maximina has been working in her small business selling food for several years. She also has horses which she rents out to people from her area for transport. She works every day for about 14 hours per day, and she believes that it is going well due to her good seasonings and the friendly manner in which she treats others.

Maximina is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, because thanks to their help she will be able to carry out the construction of a toilet in her home. She currently only has an underground space which she and her family use. In this way, Maximina will be able to provide her family with better security and well-being. She will continue working and putting in effort to achieve her great dream of finishing construction on her home.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
