Isabel's story

Our partner is Isabel. She belongs to the communal bank Los Lideres (The Leaders) in the city of Cusco, Perú. She works as an administrator at a school in the city, but she is also dedicated to a parallel activity of no less importance: handicrafts, mainly the production of embroidered works. With this opportunity, Isabel will use the requested loan to buy material, like colored thread and fabric, for her embroidery. Isabel is very grateful to Kiva for allowing her to provide a better quality of life for her family and for helping her with the growth and strengthening of her work. She appreciates the loan and is committed to paying off her debt in accordance with the schedule.
