Mirella Yvone
Mirella is a very hard-working woman. She is 31 years old and was born in the city of Chincha. This city is well known for being the birthplace of many big names in Peruvian sports. It is also known for its warm weather and the seasoning that the locals give to their food. One of Mirella's favorite dishes is the delicious 'Carapulcra'. Mirella studied up to the fifth year of her secondary education but she would have liked to have studied Law.

Mirella works in her food business. She gets up very early to buy the supplies that she needs to make her dishes. She says that when the ingredients are fresh, the food turns out even more delicious. In one day she can serve up to 140 customers. She believes that her business is doing well because the flavor of her food is unbeatable.

Mirella is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their support, she will be able to buy more supplies wholesale, which will make things a lot cheaper. This improvement will make her more income and, in a few months, she will be able to buy a sandwich cart. In the future, she will have enough money to make her biggest dream come true: "to own my own home".
