Liliana's story

Liliana, age 20, lives in the city of Pisco with her parents and her little son. In spite of being young, she is a very kind, hard-working, and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to succeed. Sadly, for various reasons, she separated from her life partner. Ever since then she has been father and mother to her little one. In her free time she likes to play sports. Sometimes she makes the delicious duck with rice to share with her family. Liliana was not able to study for a career in gastronomy as she so wanted to do. However, she hopes to be able to do so very soon. On her own initiative, and with support from her mother, Liliana started her small business of selling beauty products. She devotes approximately 12 hours a day to her business. During that time she is able to tend to a good number of customers. Liliana believes that her business is going well because of the good products that she sells and the kind and respectful way that she treats her customers. Liliana is very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help given to her she will be able to buy two display cases and merchandise like perfume and cosmetics, among others. This way Liliana will have a better stocked and better equipped business. She will be able to better display her products. This way she hopes to be able to increase her sales and her income. By doing so she hopes to be able to, little by little, save the money needed to expand her business and have her own place to make her sales. In the not so distant future she wishes to fulfill her big dream of having her own house. She also dreams of seeing her young son become a professional and an honorable man.
