Monica Cecilia
Monica is a 41-year-old single mother. She has two dependent children who are in secondary school. Monica's business is providing a fast food service. She chose this trade as she used to watch her mother cook from a very young age. In addition, she believes that it is a profitable business. Monica lives and works in Ica, Peru. Ica is located in the Sechura Desert, about four hours south of Lima, the country's capital. It is hailed by Peruvians as "The Land of the Sun." It is known in Peru for its frequent earthquakes (an 8.4 in 2001 and 8.0 in 2007), its production of grapes, asparagus, and olives, and perhaps most notably, as the source of Peru's traditional national drink, Pisco. In this hot, arid climate we find the client's home and business.

Monica is an exemplary, tenacious, hard-working and very responsible woman who has a great desire to get her family ahead in life, despite the challenge presented by the absence of the children's father. Monica has been providing her fast food service since 2006. She makes salchipapas (shredded sausage and fries), salchipollo (shredded chicken and fries), hamburgers etc. She earns, on average, 210 soles a week. With the loan for 2,000 soles that she will receive thanks to Kiva, Monica will invest in buying supplies (potatoes, lettuce, etc.). Monica's dream is to own her own home where her children are comfortable and safe and can enjoy a better quality of life. She would also like to grow her business so that, in the future, she becomes a big businesswoman. Her loan officer believes her to be an excellent client who will make her repayments on time.
