Irma is a 52 year old woman, who is married, a mother of three and a grandmother to three grandchildren. She has always leaned towards gastronomy and in her youth she took various elective classes. When she got married, the children came and she completely devoted herself to them, always putting off the plan to study, all combined with severe health problems.

Today she is proud to support her children and she enjoys the company of her grandchildren. The health problems have settled down and she has decided to get back the desire to study and apply herself, but now she sees that the economic part could also make her fail.

This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.

About CampoAlto

CampoAlto is a for-profit education institute that offers a variety of classes to students from socially or economically marginalized groups, including women, ethnic minorities, displaced populations, disabled individuals, and those living below the poverty line. Kiva funding is being used to pay tuition for students who couldn’t otherwise afford to attend classes.

Because CampoAlto’s core business is not purely microfinance, there is some level of additional risk for lenders. For this reason, Kiva has not assigned the institute a risk rating.
