Blanca Rosa
Blanca is a fighter and a woman with a lot of charisma. She is the mother of four children; three are grown and only the youngest of them lives with her. She loves her very much and she works with all her strength to give her everything she needs, although the most important thing is for her to be happy. She is Blanca's "conchito," as we say in Peru [youngest child], because she is very devoted and in spite of how little she is, she helps her mother a lot. Her house is located in the city of Imperial, a city known for its warm climate, its agriculture, and especially because the residents radiate generosity.

Blanca learned to earn a living with the sweat of her brow from a very young age, especially when she became a mother. She worked in various jobs because she had to support her household. Previously she worked cleaning houses, then she worked in the fields. With the savings she managed to put together she started her bookstore business in her house, where she currently works.

She does not say no to work; she works in everything she can because as long as it is honorable, it matters. This is why, despite having her bookstore, she also works caring for a little girl from Monday through Friday in the morning. She has a lot of patience with children and so they trust her. She believes that it is going well for her in her business because she is very friendly and patient, and especially because she is thankful to God for allowing her to have a job and for being able to get ahead.

Blanca is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because, thanks to the help they have given her, she will be able to buy more supplies for her bookstore business, especially notebooks, folders, paper, and pens, among others. This will allow her to have more variety of products to sell to her customers and to continue working every day to make her big dream a reality: "To give her daughter a good education and to have branches of her business."
