Rosaly Cristina's story
Rosaly is a single mother who was recently widowed. Now she is taking care of her 10 year old daughter, who's in school, by herself. They both live in Rosaly's mother's house. Her goal is to help her daughter get ahead and to keep supporting her so that when she's older she can become a professional. Rosaly has been selling shoes, clothes and salchipollo (chicken with french fries) for almost 7 months, a trade that she learned from a very young age by helping her aunts to sell shoes and other products. When she had her baby she felt like her lived changed, and she's willing to have many jobs so that she and her daughter can continue living a happy and full life together, without lacking for anything. Rosaly's business is in the city of Mala, where she has found another good business opportunity - opening a store in the market of the city San Pedro de Mala. She will only achieve this dream if she keeps increasing her income Thanks to the Kiva lenders and her loan of 2,000 nuevos soles, she will be able to buy a lot more merchandise, a glass display case and other materials for her business. With time and hard work, Rosaly will invest her money well and will be able to realize her dream.
