Maritza's story

This communal bank member is Señora Maritza. She belongs to the communal bank "Amauta" in the city of Cusco, Peru. She continues making knitted articles of clothing such as sweaters, and she also buys and sells clothing for women, men, and children. Maritza, as in the past, is applying for the loan to buy material such as wool and merchandise such as jackets, pants, polo shirts, etc., to capitalize her business for the coming Christmas season. Maritza is very grateful to Kiva for allowing her to continue with her business, which represents the principal economic income and sustenance of her family.
