Isidora's story

Isidora is a very hardworking 35-year-old woman who has a great desire to get ahead and knows that with dedication she will succeed. She has built a thriving business at over 17,000 feet above sea level in her rented home in the mining town of La Mina Rinconada, in the Puno region of Peru.

Isidora has a general store that supplies the population of La Mina Rinconada with groceries and other items for the home. She has had her business for 14 years, and the most difficult thing about living there is putting up with the intense cold of the Andes Mountains. But, she enjoys selling her merchandise and she feels that she is a part of the development of the town. She would like to increase the quantity of products she offers for sale, so that she can better meet the needs of the residents of her town.

This is Isidora's third loan with Kiva's partner Microfinanzas PRISMA, and she has plans for many more. She has been punctual in her loan repayments and has not had any problems with her community bank, where she is much beloved since she is very responsible. She will invest the money from this loan in the purchase of merchandise to improve her store.
