She is single, is 30 years old and is a mother of 2 children, both depend on her economically. Karina, a short time ago began taking pictures in sizes for documents like: identity cards, passports, large photographs, and national identity documents. Little by little, Karina began getting more profits and she began saving her money so that she can keep her business growing. Since she has charisma and talent, she does not doubt doing her job and with the support of Movimiento Manuela Ramos (Kiva’s field partner) she feels more empowered.

She tells us that daily she has very good profits since she is located in front of the Reniec (National Registry of Identification and Civil Status) and they are her main customers.

To this day she is very happy and is motivated to make her dreams and goals come true. She is thankful to Movimiento Manuela Ramos for helping her start her business and to many women who want to grow in businesses as well.
