Cristina Alicia's story

Meet Cristina, who belongs to the "Los Lideres" [the Leaders] communal bank in the city of Cusco, Perú. She still makes home and office furniture in her carpentry workshop. As in the past, she is seeking a loan to buy materials such as wood, paint, glue, and upholstery for making furniture. Cristina is really grateful to Kiva for making it possible to continue her business, which is her family's primary source of income and support.
