Jaquelin Karina's story

Jaqueline lives in the city of Chincha, which is known as the cradle of Peruvian athletes. The people there are also very well known for their tasty food. Jaqueline lives with her husband, a teacher, and their two children, ages 10 and 12, whom she loves very much. They are her source of happiness and her reason to live, and it's because of them that she works hard every day to get ahead.

With a lot of hard work Jaqueline started a business making and selling sweets like cakes, alfajores, breads, puddings and other things. She works about 8 hours a day at her business. She has a good taste for sweets and she thinks that's why her business is going well, along with her friendly customer service. Most of her customers are children and she's always patient with them.

Jaqueline is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help she will be able to do maintenance on her oven, buy another oven, and buy other implements for baking that will allow her to make more treats more quickly and have better equipment to do her work. She will keep working in order to achieve her dream - "having a pastry and bakery business and making the best sweets in the city, and above all giving her children an occupation."
