A loan of $300 helped to purchase 200 grams of silver to make jewelry.


Cristina's story

Cristina was born in the city of Cusco. She is 50 years old and she lives in Cusco together with her 3 children. She has been making crafts for the past 30 years and she has a small jewelry workshop. She always buys 200 grams of silver to supply her business. This will be one of many loans she has had with Asociacion Arariwa (Kiva Field Partner). She is very happy to know she has this form of financial support and she has always shown herself to be responsible with her payments. She also enjoys being part of her communal bank, named "Templo del Inca", because all of the members are responsible and supportive people. She is thankful to those individuals who will contribute to the loan she requests. It will be very useful in the progress of her business. With the loan that she requests she will purchase 200 grams of silver to make jewelry, including necklaces, rings, bracelets, and other articles.

Cristina is a hardworking mother who provides for her children. Her dream is to export to other countries.
