Viviana Isabel
Viviana lives in the city of Mala, a city noted for having beautiful beaches, for its residents’ friendliness and for its agriculture. Viviana is a single mother who is raising her three-year-old son alone because her child’s father abandoned them and since that moment she became both father and mother to her son. But it is her son who gives her the strength to continue forward by just smiling at her and looking at her. When she has free time available she likes to read and listen to music alongside her little one; occasionally she enjoys one of her favorite dishes, the very delicious “Pescado Frito.” She only attended secondary school but would have like to have studied Nursing.

Viviana rises very early every day to do her household chores and at the same time work in her grocery selling business. She dedicates about 10 hours daily to her store and can tend to up to 15 customers per day. She believes that she does well in her business because she has much charisma to take care of customers.

Viviana is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given her she will be able to buy more merchandise for her store like rice, sugar, noodles and canned goods, among others in order to have more products to offer her customers. Her income will increase and she will be able to continue working and striving toward reaching her greatest dream: to have a house of her own and to give her son a good education.
