Mujeres Decididas E Independientes Group's story

Hello from Peru! This is the group "Mujeres Decididas e Independientes" [Determined and Independent Women]

Yris is thirty-two years old, is married, and has one nine-year-old son. She lives with her mother. Yris works in selling handicrafts that she makes, like embroidery, cards, and fantasy jewelry. Her friends and neighbors always ask for the items that she makes. Thanks to the income she makes, she can help to sustain her family.

Yris is going to use this loan to buy materials for her business. She dreams of having a much larger business and of improving the quality of her handicrafts so that she can export them.

Yris is very happy in knowing that many people throughout the world will be helping her business. To the investors of Kiva, she says: "Thank you!" In the photo, she is the first on the left, seen in a green and white striped shirt.

In this group: Lizzette, Victoria Milagros, Pablo Cesar*, Gladys Victoria, Mabi Doris, Susana Milagros, Yris Magaly, Nelvin Hernan
