A loan of $400 helped to purchase rice, potatoes, noodles, vegetables, soft drinks, and beer.


Javier's story

Javier belongs to the communal bank “Los Hijos de Qolquewasi” (Sons of Qolquewasi) in the city of Cusco, Perú. He continues dedicating himself to running his restaurant with the help of his daughter. With this opportunity, Javier will use his loan to buy supplies such as rice, potatoes, noodles, vegetables, soft drinks, and beer to serve in his restaurant.

Javier’s greatest dream is to be able to expand and improve his restaurant so that someday, he can leave the job to his daughter, who supports him in everything. Javier is grateful to Kiva for allowing him to develop in his work and continue to grow more each time.
