A loan of $1,300 helped to purchase silver jewelry.


Adelaida's story

This member, Adelaida, belongs to the "Los Diamantes" ("Diamonds") communal bank based in the city of Cusco, Peru. She continues to run her business trading handicrafts, mainly silver jewelry. Adelaida sells her merchandise at major craft markets in the city, in particular the main tourist market.

Adelaida is applying for this loan to capitalize on her trade and buy merchandise for the upcoming holiday season, such as earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings, and silver accessories.

Adelaida is very grateful to Kiva for the support and assistance she has received to keep her business going. Her work is the main source of income and livelihood for her family.
