A loan of $5,725 helped a member to buy beauty products.


Peruanos A Trabajar Group's story

Greetings from Peru, from a group made up of eight responsible women from different commercial backgrounds. They are members of the "Peruanos a Trabajar" communal bank. One of the members is Yolanda who is 33 years old, married and has two children. For the last seven years, Yolanda has been making her living selling beauty products every day in a small business. She has succeeded in getting ahead in life and therein being able to pay for her children's secondary schooling. With the fruit of her efforts, Yolanda has managed to improve her home and support her children's education.

In improving her business, her greatest dream is that her children become professionals and that is why Yolanda works so much. With the loan, she will invest in the purchase of more cosmetic goods and therein obtain more sales. Yolanda bids us farewell sending Kiva a hug and is thankful for the loan that she has been given as it enables her to progress.

In this group: Smith, Juana, Marcela, Lisseth, Yolanda, Guadalupe, Aurea, Angelica
