Kelly Natalia's story

Kelly is a plucky woman, a warrior of a thousand battles. She lives in Ibague municipality.

She currently works at her business selling fruits. She started this business owing to financial need. Thanks to this hard work and the support of relatives, she has been able to overcome obstacles and face adversity. Kelly is continuing to work and fighting to expand and generate jobs. She hopes to achieve her goals, and - most important - to earn an honest living.

She has therefore come to Kiva to apply for a loan to buy fruit and another fruit cart.

Kelly is mother to one son. She hopes to pay for his education and, in the future, to buy a home.
