Erika Milagritos
Erika is a 32 year old woman who lives in the city of Cañete in the district of Mala. She lives with her partner and two young daughters, who are 3 and 10 years old. She is a very hardworking and helpful person, who has directed all of her efforts towards getting her family ahead. Unfortunately, due to the necessity to work and pay bills, Erika was not able to study for a professional career - but she would have liked to be an English teacher. In her free time she likes to play with her little girls, and sometimes she makes "arroz con pollo" [chicken and rice], a delicious dish and her family's favorite.

With the desire to get ahead and the support of her partner, Erika opened a small business selling shoes for men, women and children. She works approximately six hours a day, during which she can assist an average of six customers. Erika believes that her business is doing well because of her friendly and respectful service that she offers her clients.

Erika is very appreciative to the Kiva lenders, as it's thanks to their help that she will be able to buy merchandise like shoes, sneakers, and boots for men, women and children for the winter season. In this way Erika will have her business better stocked, increasing her sales and economic income. Little by little she wants to save enough money to get her own home, and reach her big dream of offering a better education and quality of life to her daughters.
