Cinthia Solange's story

Cinthia, 21, is a young woman whose parents taught her what it meant to earn your livelihood with the sweat from your brow when she was little and because of that she’s very hardworking. She lives with her husband and they have three little ones who are 1, 3 and 6 years old who she loves very much and for whom she gives her life in order to provide them with a good quality of life above all with much love.

When she has any free time available she likes to dance and she does so with her little ones to entertain herself. On occasion she also likes to eat one of her favorite dishes, the very delicious “Lomo Saltado.” Because her parents did not have many economic resources, she only attended secondary school but would have liked to have studied Administration.

With mush effort and dedication Cinthia works in her business selling plastic products, especially plastic to cover during the rainy season and decorative plastic for tables, among others. She spends about 9 hours per day at work and can take care of up to 10 customers in a day. She believes that she does well in her business because her sales stand is located in a very busy spot and above all because she treats her customers very politely.

Cinthia is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given her she will be able to buy more plastic products to sell in her business and improve her income this way. She will have more products to offer her customers which will make it possible for her to continue striving towards making her greatest dream a reality: to give her children a good education and a good quality of life.
