Santa Eleuteria
Santa lives in the city of Ica, which has a very hot and pleasant climate. Agriculture plays a big part in the city's development, particularly the cultivation of grapes and asparagus. Santa is a very hardworking woman; as her parents were very poor, she has known since she was a little girl what it is like to work hard to put bread on the table. Santa works every day in a small food shop, which she fought hard to save up to buy. She works for around 9 hours and serves up to 10 customers a day. She believes that business is going well for her because she is friendly with her customers and above all because her food tastes good.

Santa is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they have given her she will be able to buy a small awning for her shop, providing a more comfortable environment for her customers by giving them some shade. This will increase her profits and means that she will be able to continue working towards making her dream of owning a big restaurant a reality.
