Tereza
Tereza, 42, is married and has a 17-year-old son. She lives in her own house, which is the fruit of her effort and dedication. Every day, she works hard to improve her quality of life. Tereza makes charcoal. She has land in an area outside the city, which has been set aside for this purpose, and she works there every day. She has been doing this work for two years, and she works here in the afternoons and works in a carpentry shop in the mornings. This is where she gets the discarded wood that she needs to make charcoal. She started this business when she saw that the leftover wood was being wasted. This is how she decided to give it another use, and take advantage of every bit of leftover wood. She works with the help of her brother and her partner. Occasionally she sells fruit on the weekend or when she has free time. What she likes about her work is that she can work without pressure and earn her own income. She feels good about having more to give work-wise, even if it isn't much. She says that what she likes most is interacting with people. She hopes that her business keeps growing at the same rate. This is her fourth loan from Kiva. She is very glad for the financial support they are providing to her, since she will feel secure in moving forward with her business. She promises to make her payments on time. With the amount she is asking for, 1,500 soles, she will buy sacks of wood and other things that she needs for her work.
