Susana Maria
Susana is a 27-year-old woman living in the city of Cañete, Imperial District, with her parents and little two-year-old son who she loves and is her reason to live. She’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who focuses all her efforts into moving her little boy forward since she’s both mother and father to him. Unfortunately, Susana was unable to study a professional career because she had to go to work at a very young age to help her parents meet household expenses.

On her own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Susana works in her small business selling food. She sells ‘salchipapas’ [fried potatoes with fried sausages], hamburgers, ‘salchipollo’ [fried potatoes with fried chicken] and others. She started out selling candy from place to place and thanks to her efforts and her savings she was able to buy a small food cart that’s very useful for her business. She works very day for about 8 hours and feels good doing her work; she believes she does well because of the tasty way she cooks and because of the gracious customer service she provides.

Susana is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help provided she will be able to do some improvements to her sales stand as well as to buy tables and chairs to furnish it better. In this way, Susana will be able to continue working and providing better customer service and she will be able to strive to get ahead and reach her dream of having a chicken shop and in the not too distant future see her little one become a great professional.
