Jeraldine Veronica's story

Jeraldine is a young 20-years-old woman, very entreprenurial and hard working. She is single and lives with her family in the city of Chincha. In her leisure time enjoys listening to music and sometimes prepares one of her favorite dishes as is the "Sopa Seca con Papa a la Huancaína", a potato soup.

Thanks to her entrepreneurial spirit and the support of her family, Jeraldine launched an office-suply store, where she sells office supplies, as well as photocopy services and ring-binding; she works approximately 13 hours a day, in which can accommodate up to 40 customers, she thinks that her business is running well due to the variety of products, fast and good attention she offers to her customers.

Jeraldine is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as because of their support, she would be able to purchase computers to complement her business with internet booths; as a result, she could increase her income and little by little achieve her great dream of having her own home and being a woman of good.
