A loan of $400 helped to buy crafts to sell.


Martha's story

Martha belongs to communal bank 'Virgen Asunta de Calca', from Calca province in Cusco, Peru. She is a secondary school teacher who also sells crafts, mainly ceramics and woven cloth, at the artesans' fair of Pisac district, one of the main and most important such fairs in the country. She asks for this loan in order to buy crafts to sell, such as jumpers, scarves, ponchos, gloves, and ceramics, so as to increase the income she derives from her business. Martha is very grateful to Kiva lenders for their help with her business, which is her family's main source of income.
