A loan of $800 helped to buy cosmetics to sell.


Maria Jesus's story

María Jesús belongs to communal bank 'Virgen Asunta de Calca', from Calca province in Cusco, Peru. She is a primary school teacher who also sells cosmetics, both in direct sales and on request. She asks for this loan in order to buy cosmetics, make-up, and perfumes in order to take full advantage, commercially speaking, of the Christmas season. She is very grateful to Kiva lenders for their help with her business, which helps support her family and pay for household expenses.
