Karina's story

Karina is a member of the “LOS DIAMANTES” communal bank in the city of Cusco – Peru. She continues to study biology at one of the local universities. Karina is a very entrepreneurial young woman and is taking advantage of the opportunities to set up a business to help herself financially and also support her mother. Since the Christmas season is approaching, she is asking for a loan in order to buy Christmas decorations and arrangements, such as colored lights, Christmas trees, and general decorations. Karina wants to continue studying and supporting her mother. She is grateful to Kiva for allowing her to invest in her complementary activities which represent an extra income for her home.
