A loan of $975 helped to buy utensils and supplies for her business making fruit juices.


Ysela's story

Ysela is a member of the communal bank "Luz del Sur," in the city of Cusco, Peru. She is a young mother of a school-aged child. She is also a very hardworking woman. She is continuing with her business making and selling fruit juices at a stall in a market in the city. At this time, Ysela is requesting a loan to buy utensils such as cups and supplies such as honey, a variety of fruit, and sugar, which she needs to make her juices.

Ysela works hard and sacrifices herself in order to give her only child a better life and, most importantly, to provide him with a better education. She is very grateful to Kiva for giving her the means to provide her family with a better quality of life and her child with a better education.
