Adelaida's story

Adelaida is a member of the communal bank "Señor de los Temblores II" in the city of Cusco, Peru. She is a very hardworking woman who is continuing with her business selling snacks from a cart in a location that is at the entrance of one of the city's universities.

At this time, Adelaida is requesting a loan to reinvest in her business by purchasing merchandise such as sweets, cookies, chocolates, chewing gum, and soft drinks.

Adelaida works hard and sacrifices herself to pay for the college expenses of her youngest daughter. She is very grateful to Kiva for allowing her to give her family a better quality of life, and her daughter a better education.
