Flor Cecilia's story

Flor, 50, is a native of the city of Cañete in the district of Imperial. She is a single mother with 3 children, of which only 1 lives with her. The other two are professionals and independent. Flor has always been a hardworking woman who is completely dedicated to helping her children get ahead. She has always fought for them, she has worked as an employee in beach houses and condominiums, and with this pay she was able to save enough money to start up her business.

Four years ago, Flor started up her business selling groceries. She launched this business because it has the ability to generate good sales. She feels very comfortable with her work, because every day she has more customers and is better able to stock her store.

Flor is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, because thanks to the help they are providing, she will be able to carry out her plans to buy more merchandise, such as rice, sugar, cooking oil, soft drinks, consumer products, and other items. In this way she will be able to better stock her store, increase her income and have more customers, thus contributing to the near future when she will convert her business into a general store where she sells groceries, gifts, and office supplies. This way, she hopes to have a better quality of life for herself and her children, because with the great love and affection feels for them, she will never stop being their mother.
