A loan of $550 helped to buy meat and other ingredients.


Isabel's story

Isabel, 37, is married living in her own house with her husband and children. Isabel is a very hardworking woman who sells food now in her town’s communal space. Thanks to family support she was able to open her locale and have stable work that helps her improve her entire family’s quality of life.

Like all enterprising women, Isabel hopes to move her small business forward and make it grow so it can meet customer needs by offering them good dishes of food.

This is her first Kiva loan and she’s very grateful for the opportunity that’s presented to have a line of credit which will be very useful for her work. She will use the 1,500 soles to buy meat and other ingredients to prepare the dishes.
