A loan of $750 helped to buy construction supplies such as bricks, stones, cement.


Dina Mercedes's story

Dina is a member of the Llamkasum Community Bank. She is married and has two children aged 11 and 5. Dina and her husband sell construction material such as stones, sand, glass, and roofing. Sales have been slow during the recent election campaigns.

Since Dina has been with Kiva partner, FINCA Perú, she has managed to save enough money to buy a vehicle for her business--she uses it to distribute building supplies. She has also enjoyed the workshops and training sessions about self-esteem. Her dream is to buy a house for herself and her family.
