Carina Rocio's story

Carina lives in the city of Pisco. She is 33 years old and a single mother. She has two children who she provides for through a lot of hard work. Carina separated from her husband for a number of reasons and needed to work in order to support herself.

Carina's business is selling fish and she set up her business with a lot of effort and, above all, savings. She works around 9 hours a day. She gets up very early in order to obtain fresh fish so that she can sell good-quality products to her customers. She believes that her business is doing well because she is very charming to her customers, provides them with good customer service and, above all, is very honest in her work.

Carina is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their help, she will be able to buy more white fleshed fish. During the summer she sells more and so this improvement will enable her to increase her income and continue working hard so that she can continue providing for her children. Her children are the biggest gift that God has given her and her reason for living. She feels happy just having them by her side.
