Iveth Mirella
Iveth Mirella lives in Mala, Perú, which is located about an hour and a half south of Lima. Known for its sandy beaches, Pre-Incan ruins, and production of the beloved national liquor, Pisco (a type of grape brandy), Mila has long been a tourist destination for wealthy Peruvians. Mila is a warm and quiet city that has a large Afro-Peruvian population. The remains of an indigenous trail are located here and the influence of the Spanish empire is evident. The city, along with others near the Pacific coast, was damaged during the earthquakes in 2001 and 2007 but bore nature’s beatings as it has for much of its history. As is well known, Perú is characterized by the most delicious meals in the world and one of Iveth’s favorite dishes is milanesa (a typical meat dish dipped in egg and bread crumbs).

Iveth studied until the fifth year in high school but would very much like to study Graphic Design. Iveth is a single mother and has a little boy who is only one year old. She is very tenacious and works about ten hours a day selling fruit. When she was a little girl, Iveth helped her mother sell fruit and learned what it means to earn bread from the sweat of the brow. This experience encouraged her to have her own business and she has well learned how to manage it in the same way. On any given day, she may have as many as 70 customers and this allows her to earn approximately S/. 400 daily. On a good day she may earn S/. 650, which helps her with some of the extra household expenses, especially the expenses for her one year old baby. She believes that the success of her business is due to the variety and quality of the products she offers.

Today, she is very grateful for the Kiva loans because thanks to the support offered, she has been able to buy scaffolding and materials for her business. This improvement will help her to increase her business and obtain better income in order to improve the quality of life for her family. In addition, she will be able to have a sales stand in her home in a few months where she will offer fruits and later sell wholesale soft drinks. She will use the loan to continue investing in her business and it will help her in the future to fulfill her great dream: to have a wholesale soft drink business.

Iveth Mirella vive en Mala, Perú. Ubicado alrededor de una hora y media al sur de Lima, Mala, con sus playas de arena, ruinas pre-incas, y la producción del adorado licor nacional, el Pisco (una especie de aguardiente de uva), ha sido durante mucho tiempo un destino turístico para los peruanos adinerados. Mala es una ciudad cálida y tranquila con una gran población afro-peruana, los restos de un camino indígena, y las influencias del imperio español. La ciudad, junto con otros cerca de la costa del Pacífico, fue dañado durante los terremotos sucedidos los años 2001 y 2007 en Perú, pero ha soportado el embate de la naturaleza como lo ha hecho durante gran parte de su historia. Como bien se sabe el Perú se caracteriza por tener las comidas más deliciosas del mundo y uno de los platos que más le agrada a Iveth es la milanesa.

Iveth estudió hasta quinto año de secundaria pero le hubiera gustado mucho estudiar Diseño Grafico. Iveth es madre soltera tiene un pequeño de tan solo 1 año de edad; ella es muy luchadora y tenaz, se dedica a la venta de futas y le dedica a este trabajo alrededor de 10 horas diarias, ella desde niña aprendió lo que es ganarse el pan con el sudor de la frente ya que desde pequeña apoyaba a su madre en la venta de frutas lo cual la animo a tener su propio negocio ya que aprendió muy bien como es el manejo del mismo .En un día Iveth puede atender hasta 70 clientes aproximadamente y esto le permite ganar aproximadamente hasta S/. 400 diarios y en un buen día puede ganar hasta S/. 650, lo que le ayuda en algunos gastos adicionales del hogar, en especial los gastos de su bebe de 1 añito; ella cree que el éxito de su negocio se da por la variedad y calidad de los productos que ofrece.

Actualmente ella agradece mucho a los prestatarios Kiva porque gracias al apoyo otorgado ha podido comprar loa andamios y los materiales para su negocio. Esta mejora podrá ayudarla a mejorar su negocio y con ello obtener mayores ingresos para mejorar la calidad de vida de su familia y así poder en algunos meses tener un puesto de ventas en su casa en donde ofrecerá frutas para posteriormente vender gaseosas al por mayor, con ello seguir invirtiendo en su negocio y con ello la ayudará a cumplir más adelante su gran sueño” Tener una distribuidora de gaseosas."
