A loan of $725 helped to buy a stove, dining room set, bed, and mattress.

Mary Luz's story

Mary, 26, is an enterprising young woman. She lives in Yarinacocha with her family.

She has worked for a year for the town in the area where she lives. She does cleaning and gardening. It's going very well for her because she's very responsible, devoted to her job, respectful, and friendly, and because she wants to get ahead.

Her greatest motivation is her family, so she strives tirelessly to be able to improve their quality of life.

Mary's grateful to the Kiva lenders because with their help she'll be able to buy some furniture for her home, such as a dining room set, a bed and mattress for herself and her son, and a new stove for better safety. That way she'll be able to raise her standard of living and live more comfortably.
