Maria Milagros's story

Maria is a very hardworking person. She and her husband have a 10-year-old son and they both strive everyday to get him ahead so that he can live a good and happy life. Their house is located in the town of Chincha, which is known for being home to the great glories of Peruvian sports. The town is also known for the fact that its people are skilled at food preparation. When she has free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and taking care of them. She also enjoys making her favorite dish, the delicious "picante de res" (spicy meat stew).
Maria works on her beauty product selling business with a lot of enthusiasm. She works around 8 hours a day and she can serve up to 10 customers a day. She believes that her business does well because she's very charismatic and most of all because she's very very well-known among customers.
Maria is very thankful to Kiva lenders, because thanks to their help she will be able to purchase a washing machine and a television for her home. With this improvement, she will be able to improve her family's living conditions, since they didn't have these appliances. They are above all for her son's convenience. Maria will keep on working on a daily basis in order to make her biggest dream come true: "To build her house with noble materials".
