A loan of $775 helped to purchase potatoes wholesale.


Francisca's story

Meet Francisca: she is a member of the communal bank “Virgen Asunta de Racsa” and comes from the city of Cusco, Peru. For many years she has made a living by selling potatoes. She has managed to improve and develop her business, and her family has benefited from this.

Francisca supplies potatoes at different markets around Cusco. Thanks to her hard work and efforts she has managed to expand her customer base. She plans to invest her loan in funding her business. She will buy different varieties of potatoes wholesale, in order to target her market niche and meet demand.

Francisca is very grateful to KIVA for helping her to educate her children and for allowing her to keep her business going and provide for her family.
