Myryan Yaninna's story

Myryan is a young entrepreneur living in the city of Chincha, a city that stands out because of its Afro-Peruvian population. It is the birthplace of great Peruvian sports heroes and has beautiful beaches. The city is also very well-known for its cuisine because people in this city are known for preparing very tasty dishes. When she feels worried or tired her husband encourages her very much; he’s her right hand and her best friend.

Myryan is a pastry maker; she sells sweets, gelatin, sesame sponge cakes and snacks. She goes throughout her neighborhood’s streets offering her sweets but this isn’t all she does; she also sells domestic gas at home. Myryan is very hardworking. She spends about 9 hours daily at work. She believes that she does well in her business because she prepares her sweets in a very delicious way and because she’s very organized and likes cleanliness which is why customers are encouraged to buy her products. In addition, she treats them kindly and the most important thing though is that she prepares her desserts with much love.

Myryan is very grateful to Kiva lenders because this is the second time they’ve given her their support and thanks to this help she will be able to buy a refrigerator to better store her desserts so that they won’t spoil. With this she’ll have more income to continue investing in her business as well as to save up to improve to attain her greatest dream: to grow as a micro businesswoman.
