Raquel Yres's story

Raquel belongs to the village bank "Los Lideres" [The Leaders] in the city of Cusco, Peru. She sells basic goods in a grocery store that she opened after a lot of hard work. She has been doing it for a long time now and it allows her to get her family ahead. On this occasion, Raquel is investing the requested loan in the purchase of products like rice, sugar, noodles, milk, oil, drinks, etc to be able to capitalize on her business.

Raquel is very grateful to Kiva for allowing her to give a better quality of life to her family and helping to maintain and develop her economic activities to give her children, who still depend on her, a better education.

She is grateful for the loan and promises to make her payments according to the repayment plan.
