Julia in Peru


I participated in a Kiva loan to Julia Alejandra Retamozo Rivera in Peru. Julia is a single mother, 38 years old, with 2 children. She sells white stone sculptures, which she arranges to be made by craftspeople in Ayachuco city and sells wholesale in Lima city.

Hi Julia!
I'm also participating in a Kiva loan and it's been fantastic so far. I hope everyone hears about Kiva and other microloan organizations. My experience is pretty fresh, and have nothing but great things to say about it. Here's a link if you'd like to see how it's going: http://goodturns.blogspot.com/2008/03/kiva-loan-update-first-payment-already.html
Keep it up! Doing good work...
