A loan of $1,075 helped to buy drinks.


Armanda Dorotea's story

Armanda is 44 and lives with her husband and two children in the city of Huaraz in the district of Carhuaz. She is very hardworking and puts all her energy into providing for her family. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources, Armanda could not study for a degree. On her own initiative, Armanda runs a small shop selling a range of drinks. She works for approximately 10 hours every day and believes that things are going well for her thanks to her dedication and her efforts. Armanda is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as thanks to their help she will be able to buy a greater quantity and variety of drinks to stock up her shop, and therefore serve more customers. She will continue to work hard towards achieving her dream of seeing her two children have good careers.
