Macedonia
Macedonia, 39, is a single mother of 3 children, whom she lives with in her own house. When she was young she worked in agriculture, which helped her become independent and start out with her partner and and first child in search of increasing their family finances. As years went by, she decided to change business and began buying and selling wood blocks wholesale. She received economic support from her parents to make her first purchases and managed to recuperate the investment on her first sale to wood dealers in the capital. It was thanks to this that she was able to meet one of her first goals and construct her home out of fine materials, later adding a second floor.

After her separation, she continued her business independently and managed to support her young children alone. Having various areas in her house that were not in use she decided to rent them out. Her first tenants were very responsible with their payments, which allowed her to meet other economic needs with the income. In time she hopes to continue expanding more areas of her house to rent, so she is taking into account that the construction of the third floor of her home needs to be finished. She's trying to have a monthly income with time.

This is her third loan with Kiva and she feels grateful for the financial support that she receives to continue on. She promises prompt payment on her installments. On this occasion she would like to have 4,000 nuevos soles and purchase brick, cement and metal to improve the bathrooms in her tenants rooms.

Macedonia de 39 años de edad , es madre soltera de tres hijos con quienes vive en su casa propia. Cuando fue joven se dedicaba a la agricultura que le sirvió para independizarse y empezar junto a su pareja y primer hijo a buscar el crecimiento de su economía familiar. Con el paso de los años decidió cambiar de actividad y entró en el negocio de la compra y venta de bloques madereros al por mayor recibiendo el apoyo económico de sus padres para solventar sus primeras compras y logrando recuperar el dinero invertido en su primera venta a empresarios madereros de la capital. Fue gracias a esta actividad que cumplió uno de sus primeros objetivos que era la construcción su vivienda a base de material noble y luego construyo su segundo piso. Despues de su separación continuaba de manera independiente con su actividad comercial logrando ella sola mantener a sus menores hijos. Al tener varios ambientes de su casa sin usar decidió ponerlos en alquiler y sus primeros inquilinos fueron personas muy responsables en sus pagos que le permitía obtener ingresos para cubrir otras necesidades económicas. Espera con el tiempo seguir ampliando mas ambientes de su casa para alquilarlos y por eso considera que es necesario culminar la construcción del tercer piso de su vivienda y tratar con el tiempo tener un ingreso fijo mensual. Este es su tercer préstamo con Kiva y se siente agradecida por el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante, además se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual. En esta ocasión desea contar con 4,000 nuevos soles y comprar ladrillos, cementos y fierros para mejorar los baños de los cuartos de los inquilinos.
