Los Angeles De Vitarte Group's story

Greetings from Peru.

A group of 10 responsible and enterprising women make up the Communal Bank “Los Ángeles de Vitarte”. One of these women is Sra. Reyna. She is 41 years old, married, and has three children. For the past five years, she has been selling shoes from the small shop where she works every day. This enables her to move forward and pay for the educational expenses of her children.

Through her efforts, Sra. Reyna has been able to make improvements to her home and help her children get ahead. Her greatest wish is to see her children become professionals. For this reason, Sra. Reyna works hard. The loan she received will be invested in the purchase of more shoes that she will eventually resell. As a result, she will have more income.

Sra. Reyna would like to give a big hug to Kiva and express her appreciation for the loan that has been given to her. This makes it possible for her and her family to make progress.

In this group: Sara, Reyna, Genesis, Liz, Gladys, Teresa, Liceth, Zoila*, Doris, Bertha*
