Soledad's story

Soledad belongs to the communal bank "LOS DIAMANTES" (The Diamonds) in the city of Cusco in Peru.

The member continues to work as an early years teacher. At the same time, she continues to make items of clothing such as woollen scarves, gloves, hats, jumpers etc. She distributes them directly and at the request of her customers.

Soledad has been doing this for many years and this is her main source of income and way of providing for her family.

Soledad requests this loan to buy materials such as sheep and alpaca wools, threads and accessories to make her items. She feels thankful to Kiva for helping her to maintain and strengthen her work.
