A loan of $575 helped to buy women's lingerie.


Marisol's story

Marisol belongs to the Los Hijos de Qolquewasi communal bank in the city of Cusco, Peru. She continues with her direct sales of women’s lingerie. Marisol has worked in this business for some time. It is through this business activity that she supports her only daughter, who is a minor. This time she will use her loan to capitalize her business activity. She will buy lingerie to fill orders from numerous customers. Most of them are women. Marisol wants to continue working hard in order to eventually set up a clothing and lingerie store. This way she will strive to give her daughter a better education. Marisol is very grateful to Kiva for allowing her to educate her daughter and maintain and develop her business activity.
