A loan of $1,150 helped to remodel her tourist agency.


Silvia's story

Silvia, 33, is a very tenacious but above all optimistic young woman; for her "I can’t" does not exist. She lives with her husband who is her right hand in everything she does and with her two year old daughter who’s the most important gift God and life could possibly give her; just with her smile she makes Silvia forget her problems and carry on.

Her house is located in the city of Pisco, a city noted for having one of the country’s most important tourist attractions: the Ballestas Islands and the Paracas Candelabrum as well as beautiful beaches. Thanks to these very beautiful places Silvia worked for a travel agency and learned much there so then she decided to have a travel agency herself and with much effort and saving managed to do so; her business has been in operation four years now. She believes she does well in it because she’s very kind and honest with tourists and above all because she has a singular charisma when she takes care of them.

Silvia is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given her Silvia will be able to remodel and upgrade her tourist agency and will be able to buy accessories for her office to provide better customer service thus improving her income to continue striving day to day to make her greatest dream a reality: to give her daughter a good education and to make her tourist agency grow.
