Maria Del Rosario
Maria is a very determined and enthusiatic woman. She lives in city of Imperial, a city noted for the important commercial activity carried on by its inhabitants. Located on its outskirts is the Ungará Fortress, last vestige of the Huarco Culture of ancient Cañete. Old haciendas are also found there, set amidst extensive croplands.

She and her husband have three children, but only live with two of them, as one lives in another city for work reasons; and so does her husband, whom she only sees on weekends. At 40, Maria feels like a young woman of 20, and thanks to that cheerful and determined spirit, she moves forward every day because she wants her children to be better off than she is.

Previously, Maria worked worked in the countryside near a city far away from where she currently lives. Because she wants to to closer to her children, she made an effort and saved to be able to start her business selling salchipollos (fast food dish made with shredded chicken) from Monday to Saturday. On Sundays she sells daily meals, and sometimes she also works washing clothes. She believes that her business is going well because she likes to work and does so with pleasure. That's why her customers always seek her out.

Maria is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they have offered her, she will be able to buy a cooker, and also fit up and repair an eatery outside her home, to be able to sell her products and have a better, more convenient environment for her customers. This will allow her to continue striving and working day by day to fulfill her greatest dream: "To help my children become professionals."
