A loan of $550 helped to buy doors and windows.

Silvia's story

Silvia is a member of the Teresa Ramos communal bank in the Calleria district in the department of Ucayali. She is 54 years old, married and has two children.

She is one of the founders of this communal bank, and has been working to proviD. for her old age. She is building two rooms to offer for rent. Her house is in one of the city's tourist areas and she has recognized the opportunity to generate income from this business.

With this new loan of 1,500 PEN she will buy two wooden doors and three windows. She will also be able to fit out two more rooms, making them ready for rental. She only needs to install the front entrance door to the rooms and she will have another source of income.

All this is thanks to Kiva Field Partner, Manuela Ramos, who is providing this new loan that will be put to very good use. All this is for the benefit of her family. Only one of her children lives with them and he is helping with the work on the house.
