Monica Maribeli
44-year-old Maribeli is married with two children. Her husband is a motorcycle taxi driver, trying to raise a united and successful family as they have always hoped to have. Maribeli currently sells meals and speciality dishes in her small restaurant. She often feels fortunate because she can prepare the dish "Chupe de Camerones" (shrimp chowder) which she so enjoys.

Maribeli enjoys reading books, especially about cooking, which help her to improve the taste of her dishes and thus make her customers increasingly happy. She works 8 hours a day on average, and it is hard work because she has to get up early each day to purchase ingredients and prepare food for her guests.

Over the years, she has learned a lot from her business, such as where she should go to buy produce and how many portions are needed each day. It is largely thanks to her parents that she is doing such a good job, as they taught her about many aspects of working in a kitchen.

With the assistance of a loan from Kiva, Maribeli wants to buy and install a tank on the roof of her house so that she will have water during the day and at night, allowing her to wash all the dirty dishes and utensils after a day of constant work. With this new support, and constant dedication, she may be able to fulfil her dream to "expand her business nationally."
