Vilma's story

Vilma’s a member of the “Puntualito” communal bank in Cusco, Peru. She continues working baking bread, an activity she’s been in for many years and that she’s made grow thanks to much effort and work. On this occasion, Vilma’s asking for a loan to buy ingredients like flour, sugar, salt, yeast, raisins, etc. to make panettones for the upcoming Christmas season; these are very large sweet breads filled with raisins and candied fruit that people tend to consume on these dates. Vilma’s very grateful to KIVA for allowing her to develop in her economic activity that means support for her family and development of her activity.
