Sofia's story

Sofía is a member of the “Señor de los Temblores II” (Lord of Tremors II) communal bank in the city of Cusco, Peru. She’s a young, hardworking, devoted mother. She’s still selling food from place to place. On this occasion, Sofía is requesting the loan to buy ingredients like rice, vegetables, meat, etc. to make her dishes. Sofía works a lot and sacrifices to pay for school for her children who are school age and this is why she’s very grateful to KIVA for making it possible for her to provide better education for her family.
