Nelly Esther
Nelly is 58 years old and is a spirited, very happy woman. More than anything, she has told us that even though he is 58 years old, she has the spirit of a 20-year-old. She believes that despite the passage of time, one's happiness and the will to live should always be that of a young person.

Nelly's home is in the beautiful city of Pisco, which is known for farming, fishing, and tourist attractions such as the Ballestas Islands and the Paracas Candelabra. In addition, it has gorgeous beaches and above all is known for the generosity of its residents.

Nelly is very good at knitting. When she has free time she loves more than anything to knit sweaters, scarves, etc. Likewise, she likes to cook one of her favorite dishes: the delicious "Arroz con Pato" (rice with duck). Due to her parents' limited financial resources, Nelly only went to school up to secondary school, but she would liked to have studied nursing.

Every day for a long time, Nelly gets up to work at her flower-selling business. She works about 10 hours a day and can have up to 30 customers a day. She always has a friendly personality and she believes this is why that her business is going well for her. Her customers always leave satisfied. In addition, she owes her success to being very honest and very creative in making her flower arrangements.

Nelly is very happy and grateful for the help offered by Kiva lenders, since this is the second time that they are giving their valuable support. She will be able to buy more merchandise for her business, including flower bouquets, especially roses, carnations, gladioli, among others (since in every arrangement there is a great variety of flowers). With this, she would improve her income and have a greater variety of flowers (especially since Fathers' Day is coming up and she gets more customers during this time).

In this way, she will continue working with that happiness and desire that define her so she can be able to strive to make her greatest dream a reality: building her house with high-quality materials and having another stand for her flower sales.
