A loan of $1,125 helped to pay for boat repair and maintenance.

Yuliza Yeraldine's story

Yuliza, 27, is from the city of Pisco in the district of San Andrés, which is known for its warm people, most of whom work in sea fishing. Yuliza has a common-law husband and a six-year-old daughter.

For two years, Yuliza has been managing a seafood boat she inherited from her father, thanks to which she has been able to earn enough income to build her own home.

Yuliza is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, because thanks to their help she will be able to pay for boat maintenance and avoid risks in her business. This means she can improve her income and meet her goal of giving her daughter a professional education, as well as improve her family's quality of life.
