Elizabeth Milagros's story

Elizabeth, a hardworking and enthusiastic woman, is the mother of a 3-year-old whom she adores. Her home is located in Camana, a city whose climate is warm and welcoming throughout the year. It is also well known for its delicious shrimps and for agriculture, especially the cultivation of rice. In her free time, Elizabeth likes to play volleyball or go for a run, which relaxes and distracts her when she is in a bad mood. Elizabeth tell us that her favorite dish is molded rice, and even better if it is rice with seafood. As her parents had few financial resources, she only attended high school through the fifth level.

She works from sunrise to sunset to get ahead and provide a bright future for her son. Elizabeth is a very hardworking woman who operates her retail clothing business from Mondays to Saturdays. On Sundays she sells fried chicken and fried potatoes with hot dogs at the city's market. She believes her business is doing well because she is responsible and hardworking and, most of all, because she graciously attends to her customers.

Elizabeth is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because, with the support that they have offered her, she will be able to buy more merchandise for her clothing business (clothing for the fall season). This will allow her to offer a wider variety of items and keep fighting every day to realize her greatest dream: "To have my own shop."
