A loan of $925 helped to purchase a plot of farm land.

Lisbeth Yurico's story

Lisbeth is a member of the communal bank "Los Claveles". She is 23 years old, married common-law, and she has a 3-year old child.

Lisbeth has a brick production business. The loan which she requests will be invested in the purchase of land where to make bricks. She learned this business when she was a girl from her parents, who had this occupation. When she married they decided to become independent. Everything was going well until this year when the bricks were all malformed from the constant rain and they experienced losses. But they are recovering. She appreciates the communal bank meetings at Finca Peru (Kiva Field Partner) for the loans which are granted on trustworthiness. She learns a great deal from the training sessions that they receive from their representative. They learn how to work with their money and how to not give up when faced with adversities. Her goal is to build a house of her own and to keep her business growing.
