Victoria
Victoria is 44 years old and lives with her husband, Edgar, and their five children in a home that she inherited from her mother. Victoria is a hard-working woman who takes care of livestock with her husband. She says that they have bulls, cows and a large number of sheep. But her principal source of income is from selling traditional skirts, which she embroiders in a wide range of colors and textures.

Victoria sells her embroidery work to a diverse group of merchants who come to do business with her. She says that during holidays, such as “el Santiago,” she receives more orders and sells more skirts. Victoria works very hard during this season because it is when she makes the most money. She says very happily, “I am expecting to really take advantage of it to make the profit I am hoping for.”

This is Victoria’s second Kiva loan. She says that she is grateful to lenders for the help, because she will be able to continue investing to move ahead with her business. Victoria will use the loan to buy different colored fabrics for her embroidery work.
