Cirila's story

This borrower, Cirila, belongs to the bank "Manos Juntas/ Hands Together" in the city of Cuzco, Peru. She is a very hard-working and entrepreneurial woman. She continues with her commercial activities selling beauty products by catalogue.

Cirila is requesting this loan to buy merchandise such as general cosmetics, perfumes and makeup. She wants to capitalize on the upcoming Christmas campaign that has just begun.

Cirila is very happy and thankful to KIVA for allowing her to support herself and to develop her commercial activity.
