A loan of $5,050 helped a member to buy products for her store.


Peruanos A Trabajar Group's story

The Peruanos A Trabajar communal bank is comprised of eight members who are enterprising women with a lot of business related creativity. Angélica, age 41, is one of the members. She is single and has three children.

Angélica is a very enterprising woman who, thanks to her efforts, has known how to excel. Angélica has a small store in a little place. It is her only source of income for herself and her family.

She will use the loan that was granted to buy products (rice, sugar, vegetables, etc.) for her grocery store. This way she will generate income for later sales. She will also be able to have more income and be able to pay for her children’s education.

Angélica is standing, and she has on a pink jacket. She is very grateful for the help provided. She says good-bye with a strong hug for Kiva, knowing that she will meet all of her goals.

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