Gloria Vanessa
Gloria, 29, is a single mother but this hasn’t held her back on her life’s journey. On the contrary, it’s strengthened her as a person and especially as a mother. Gloria has two children, a ten-year-old and a 16-year-old. She is enchanted by both of them; she loves them very much and is always careful to give them the best of her; above all, she always chats with them in order to help them if they have any problem. Gloria is a woman who would have liked to be a teacher by profession. Like all good Peruvians she enjoys the dishes the country has to offer but among the ones she likes best is “Ají de Gallina,” a dish served with rice.

Gloria sells groceries in a market in the city of Mala; she works from 7 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon which is when the number of customers decreases considerably. This daily struggle allows her to have a certain percentage of income needed for her daily household expenses and also to buy new merchandise. She believes that her business is successful because she always provides good service, she’s kind and the prices she offers her customers are good.

Gloria told us that her children were the main motives for her to go into this business and now she’s happy because she can care for them well and she’s doing well in her business. As a sign of her perseverance, she also sells chickens to various stores during the morning and then when she finishes doing that she takes care of her small store.

She is a great woman who hopes Kiva lenders will be able to help her to buy a motorcycle powered cargo van which will allow her to reduce costs and with the extra money be able to provide a better education for her children. With a great deal of effort she’ll be able to reach her great dream: “To sell chicken in adjacent zones and to provide her two minor children with higher education.”
