Isabel Soledad
Isabel is 40 years old and lives in Chincha with her nine year old son, whom she loves and who is her main reason for living. She is a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic woman who dedicates all of her efforts to getting her son ahead, especially since she is both mother and father to him. Unfortunately, Isabel was not able to study for a career as a nurse like she wanted, due to a lack of resources and she had to go to work. She likes to watch soap operas in her spare time and sometimes cook a delicious Carapulcra with dry soup to share with her family.

With great dedication, and thanks to her parents’ encouragement, Isabel works her small flower business. She has a small stall outside a cemetery in her town. Isabel works about 10 hours every day, beginning in the morning and she believes that things are going well for her because of the good prices and good service she provides for her customers.

Isabel is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help she was able to buy flowers in quantity to supply her business. In this way she was able to tend to her customers and provide better service. Isabel will continue working and making an effort to achieve her greatest dream of having a great flower shop.
