Guillermina Olga
Good day.

Guillermina is a charismatic mother who, at the age of 64, has managed to achieve some of her dreams, such as making home improvements and supporting her children through education.

For over 10 years, she has made a living selling desserts including buns, pies, cakes and picarones, a type of Peruvian doughnut. She sells these in the street. She is happy, because apart from making money from her work, it is what she enjoys doing.

She is requesting a loan to buy a blender, bowls and trays, making it easier to prepare her desserts. Her biggest dream is to have a stand where she can exhibit her products.

Guillermina is separated and has four children, who are all independent. She thanks Kiva lenders for the help they offer.
