A loan of $775 helped to purchase plates of melamine.


Aurora's story

Aurora is 47-years-old, is married, and has 3 children. She lives in the Santiago district in the city of Cusco. Aurora works in the production of office furniture, specifically in melamine that is processed and pressed wood. Aurora needs to increase the production of her furniture to comply with the requests of the clients. For this reason she needs a loan in order to purchase plates of melamine. Aurora is very grateful with Kiva for helping her to develop her activities and she promises to comply with timely payments. Aurora is part of the community bank “Rumbo al Exito- Santiago” (Toward Success- Santiago) in the city of Cusco, Peru. Aurora is working hard to offer her children a better future. Two of her children are of school age and for her all of her work is a sacrifice for her family.
