Fredesvinda Elisa
Fredesvinda is 55 years old and lives in the city of Nazca with her five children who she loves and are her reason for living. She is a very friendly, hard working and an enthusiastic person who dedicates all her energy to taking care of her family. She has always been both mother and father to her children. Unfortunately, due to a lack of resources and because she needed to work from a young age, Fredesvinda could not finish her primary school education, but she would like to have done so. In her free time she enjoys reading and on occasion she cooks a delicious Seco de Res (made from beef) that she shares with her family.

On her own initiative and with a lot of tenacity and dedication, Fredesvinda works in her little store selling vegetables. She works every day from the early morning hours and works for up to 10 hours. She enjoys her work and believes that everything is going well for her because of her hard work and because of the friendly attention she gives her customers.

Fredesvinda is very appreciative to the lenders at Kiva because the help that they give that will enable her to purchase a larger quantity of vegetables, pumpkin, cheese and other items. In this way, Fredesvinda will have a better stocked store and will be able to attend to a larger number of customers. In this way she will be able to continue working and striving to achieve her dream of being a large producer and selling vegetables.
