Kantu De San Jeronimo Group's story

These are all members of communal bank ”KANTU SAN JERÓNIMO”, located in the Cusco district, which belongs to the Cusco province and Cusco department. Mrs. Gladis, 37, lives in a common-law marriage and has two children. She works as a street vendor, selling breakfasts (quinoa with milk, cocoa and mate) from 5:00 am to 12:00 pm. Gladis has been doing this for five years and does very well. During her free time, she likes to prepare desserts and her dream is to open a restaurant. Gladis is requesting a loan to buy ingredients for her breakfasts, such as quinoa, milk, bread and sugar. The remaining members sell beauty products, clothes, groceries and handicrafts. Gladis wants to thank all those who make part of her dream through Kiva and promises to pay the installments according to plan.
