Gabriela Leonor's story

Gabriela Leonor C. P. belongs to the Comunal Bank group "NUESTRA SEÑORA DE LA ESPERANZA," or Our Lady of Hope. She lives in the city of Pucallpa, Peru. She is 21 years old and single. She is an entreprising young woman who supports her family.

She began her business selling food at her home, and with her first loan she bought supplies with which to prepare food. She has frequent customers and her business is growing.

She is progressing, along with her family, and the business is improving. With her loan of $350, she will purchase goods and supplies she will use to prepare her food.

Gabriela said of Kiva partner Manuela Ramos: "It is an organization that gives opportunities to many women and assists them in owning a business that will help cover the cost of necesities for a family."
