Gladys Nelly
Gladys is a very humble, kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person living in the city of Ica in Parcona District with her parents and two small children. Unfortunately, for various reasons she separated from her husband and since then has been both father and mother to her little ones. She focuses all her efforts into moving her family forward. Gladys was unable to study business administration like she wanted to but would have liked to have done so. In her free time she enjoys watching educational and news programs on television and sometimes cooks a delicious “Arroz con Pollo” to share with her family.

Thanks to her father’s support and with much effort and enthusiasm, Gladys works in her small business selling food. She starts her work very early in the morning serving breakfast and lunch to her diners. She dedicated about 12 hours daily to her business and believes that she does well because of the tasty way she cooks and the kind customer service she provides.

Gladys is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to their support she will be able to build her house since she wants to roof it with adequate, resistant materials. In this way Gladys will provide increased security and wellbeing for her family and she will continue working and striving to move her family ahead.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
