A loan of $400 helped to buy clothing such as sweaters, scarves, gloves and hats.


Maria Luisa's story

The borrower is María Luisa. She is continuing with her business selling crafts: mainly knitted items such as sweaters, scarves, gloves, hats, etc. She sells them at her stand in one of the city's most important craft markets.

María Luisa has supported herself by working in this business, which has allowed her to move forward in life and to be able to raise her children.

The borrower is requesting the loan to buy merchandise such as sweaters, ponchos and scarves, in order to capitalize her business. For that reason she is very grateful to Kiva for helping her progress in her work. She promises to make her installment payments on time.

María Luisa belongs to the “Kukuli" communal bank in the city of Cusco, Peru.
