Amelia Del Carmen's story

Amelia is a 47-year-old single woman who has been getting ahead thanks to her artisanal crafts business, which is an activity she learned from her parents.

She comes to the Kiva community to request this economic support for buying caña flecha (a type of grass), which is the primary raw material for making sombreros, furniture, accessories, etc.

She lives in a postconflict zone, where the living conditions are more complicated due to all the problems that have enveloped the region, which leads to loans presenting significant risk.
