Rosa Flor
Rosa is a hard-working, charismatic woman. She is the mother of a 5-year-old child who she raises alone, as her husband left her and her child. Since then, she has been both father and mother to her son. Her home is located in the Los Aquijes district of Ica, in Peru. This neighborhood is known as home to the facilities which make Pisco, the country’s national liqueur. The neighborhood is also well-known for its agriculture, particularly the growing of grapes, mangos, cotton, butter beans and beans, among others.

In her free time Rosa likes to sew, as well as to eat one of her favorite dishes - “Arroz con Pato con papa a la Huancaína” (rice with duck and Huancayo-style potatoes). She only attended high school, but would have liked to study law. Every day Rosa happily goes to work in her clothing sales business, where she works for around ten hours a day and can handle up to six customers. She thinks that her business is going well because she is charismatic and very friendly with her customers.


Rosa is very grateful to Kiva lenders as, thanks to the help they will give her, she will be able to buy more goods for her business: polo shirts, skirts, underwear, pants and blouses, among others. This will allow her to keep working and fulfill her biggest dream – to have a stationery shop and ensure her son gets a good education.
