Dominga's story

Dominga, the member, is 55 years old. She is married with seven children and lives in Urubamba province. She continues her business selling food as a street vendor. She has supported herself with this business, which has enabled her to get ahead and raise her children. She is requesting the loan to purchase ingredients such as rice, potatoes, meat, and vegetables, which will enable her to continue preparing her food and to finance her business. For this reason, she is very grateful to Kiva for enabling her to develop her business and she pledges to make all of her payments on schedule. Dominga belongs to the “San Jose de Urubamba” Communal Bank in Urubamba province, Cusco, Peru.
