Walquiris is very excited to receive her ninth loan with Kiva partner Esperanza Internacional, after having satisfactorily paid off her earlier loans, and with each one made a step toward growing her business. She has had her business for about four years, which she started because of her intitiative to make money and be useful. Plans are to use her new loan to purchase a flower mixer or processer. She makes breads and sponge cakes, and she is a baker. She plans to use her earnings to purchase a refrigerator. Her dream is to become an educator, which is why she wants to finish college.
