Cleofe Eufemia's story

Cleofe Eufemia and her husband run a business producing and selling caskets elaborated from wood. Together, they have owned this studio for about 10 years.

With this loan, Cleofe Eufemia plans to purchase wood. She hopes that in the future she will be able to open a funerary home as well as a storefront to display and sell caskets to the public.

Cleofe Eufemia and her husband are raising two children, ages 4 and 9. She has used prior Kiva loans to invest in tools for her husband’s carpentry work, among other activities.

Cleofe Eufemia is a member of the village bank "Los Diamantes" in Cusco, which is receiving its 16th loan from Asociación Arariwa.
