Lidia's story

33-year old Lidia is a member of the Bellavista 1 Community Bank located in the province and department of Puno. She and her husband have two children. She completed high school.

Lidia has been working with Kiva partner Movimiento Manuela Ramos for three years. Her first loan of S/.500 soles was invested in her business--she sells groceries and crafts. She also knits clothes which she sells in her store or to her friends.

Lidia is seeking a new loan of S/.200 soles to buy wool for her knitting so that she can earn more money.

She most enjoys the meetings and the training sessions organized by her Community Bank.

Lidia is shown in the photo with one of her children.
