A loan of $975 helped to buy "jora" (processed corn) and beauty products like hair dyes.


Gladis's story

Gladis belongs to the communal bank “Las Triunfadoras” of the district of Andahuaylillas of the province of Quispicanchis of Cusco, Perú. She is a young mother of a family and is very hard-working. She makes a living selling “jora” which is processed grains of corn that represent the main ingredient in the preparation of “chicha de Jora” (a traditional drink). In addition to this activity, she also has a small beauty salon where she performs hair cuts and hair and beauty treatments. On this occasion, Gladis is requesting the loan to buy jora in order to meet the demand of her customers and also to buy some beauty products such as hair dyes. Gladis is very grateful to Kiva for permitting her to strengthen her business which allows her to bring sustenance to her home.
