A loan of $1,500 helped to buy building materials and supplies.


Claudia's story

Claudia belongs to the “Tercer Milenio” (Third Millennium) communal bank in the province of Urubamba del Cusco, Perú. She sells building materials and supplies like sand, stone and plaster, among others.

She started this activity a few years ago when the construction boom and tourism began in her region. With a little bit of ingenuity and motivated by the need to earn extra income, she was able to learn this business and she comments that she does quite well.

On this occasion, Claudia will use the requested loan to buy the materials she works with like sand and building stone. Claudia is very grateful to KIVA for making it possible for her to provide her family with a better quality of life by helping her with the growth and strengthening of her activities.
