María is a 45-year-old woman who lives in the city of Ica together with her partner and her young children who she loves and who are her main focus in life. She is a very friendly, hard-working, enthusiastic person who, together with her partner, puts all her efforts into providing for her family. Unfortunately, because she needed to work in order to cover her expenses, she was unable to study for a degree even though she would very much have liked to do so.

María worked very hard to set up her small food business. She works every day, starting early in the morning. She can work approximately 10 hours a day and believes that things are going well because she is a good cook and because she treats her customers in a friendly manner.

María is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their support, she will be able to buy tables and chairs for her business. This will give her a better equipped business and she will be able to provide her customers with greater comfort and a better service. In this way, she hopes to increase her sales and her income. This will help her a lot in guaranteeing her children's well-being and education because she dreams of seeing them become professionals and upstanding citizens.
