Magda's story

Magda, 45 years old, is a courageous single mother of seven, but only three of the kids live with her. They are Grecia, 19, Yomira, 15, and Jose, 13 years old. The family lives in their own home, which is located in Playa Hermosa - San Ramon (central Peruvian rainforest). In Playa Hermosa, where Magda lives, there is one of Peru's most important waterfalls, "Tirol." There, she sells local cuisine; she already has six years' experience in this work. Every day, from the early hours of the morning until late at night, she brightens up the palates of the people who are constantly visiting this tourist spot. She belongs to the communal bank of Las Heliconias, where she works to improve her business and move forward. Because of this, she is thinking of introducing new products, beverages, desserts, and other foods that are in short supply in the area. This is her 10th loan with Kiva parter MFP, and as the founder of her communal bank, she is comforted by all the work they have done. With the loan that she is requesting, she is planning to expand her business by buying sodas and other beverages for her food stand.
