A loan of $1,000 helped to buy wool.


Rosalia's story

Rosalía is 42 years old and makes a living in knitting Alpaca wool sweaters and blankets for women. Her home and her studio are located in Batallas.

This is her first loan cycle with this institution. Rosalía will use the loan to buy Alpaca wool wholesale so she can knit sweaters and blankets, since she has a lot of orders and deliveries to markets in La Paz and Alto around Christmas time and the end of the year.

She is happy and thankful for the opportunity Kiva lenders are giving her to grow her business. She will use the profits to buy a new motor for her vehicle, because the current one has been failing and she relies on this vehicle to deliver her orders.
