A loan of $950 helped improve her home, she wishes to build a room for her small children.


Perfecta Natividad's story

Perfecta is a 24 year old woman, she lives in the city of Ica, she is married and has 2 small children who are in primary school and in her free time she enjoys cooking her favorite food, chicken with rice. Perfecta with a lot of work finished her high school education but sadly due to a lack of resources she was not able to have a university education but she would have liked to have pursued a nursing degree.

By her own initiative, a few years ago she started selling delicious deserts like alfajores (caramel sandwich cookies with powdered sugar) and cocadas (coconut cookies). She works about 7 hours a day on her business and takes care of about 80 and 110 customers. Perfecta believes that her business does well thanks to her sweets, experience and great location since she works in the center of the city.

Perfecta is very grateful to the Kiva lenders since thanks to your help she will be able to improve her home since winter season is arriving and she wishes to build an extra room for her little children. This will help her meet her greatest goal, to build a home with the comforts needed to improve her and her family’s quality of life.
