Rosa Isabel
Rosa is 21 years old, she is a young woman with a desire to succeed, above all because she supports her parents with her work. Rosa lives in the city Pisco, on the Southern coast of Peru, that is characterized by its hot climate, its beautiful beaches and its gastronomy based on fish and seafood. Rosa was not able to go to university because her parents had scant economic resources, but she would have liked to have studied administration. Day to day, Rosa works in her small store where she sells bazaar products, among other things. She works around 10 hours a day and she attends to around 20 customers every day. She believes that she is succeeding because she is friendly with her customers and because she is very responsible.

Ysabel is very thankful for the lenders at Kiva because it is thanks to their support that she will be able to purchase a storefront for her business, because she currently does not have one of her own, and this way she won't have to pay for rent any longer and she will be able to improve her earnings and to continue fighting to make her greatest dream a reality: to finish building her own home.
