Diana Miriam's story

Diana is a very charismatic woman; she’s the mother of a little one-year-old who she adores very much and is her joy and motivator to get ahead because by just looking at him she realizes how much he means to her and this is why she strives so hard to make him happy.

Her house is located in the city of Ica, a city noted for its hot climate all year as well as for agriculture, especially cotton, grapes and asparagus growing. When Diana has any free time she likes listening to music especially alongside her baby because she makes him dance in her arms. She also likes to enjoy one of her favorite dishes, the very delicious “Lomo Saltado.”

With much effort and saving Diana managed to start her business selling clothes and hamburgers at home. She works about 9 hours daily and can see up to 15 customers per day. She believes that she does well in her business because God is always with her.

Diana is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given her she will be able to buy merchandise for her business, especially women’s clothes for Mother’s Day and also to buy bottles of oil, rice, jars of mustard and ketchup that will make it possible for her to have a greater variety of products and to have the ingredients necessary to make hamburgers leading to improved income to continue striving toward making her dream a reality: “To have her own locale.”
