Linia Ines's story

Libia is a young 33 year old woman. She lives in the beautiful city of Pisco, which is characterized by agriculture, fishing, and its beautiful beaches. It's tourist attractions are the Islas Ballestas and the Candelabro de Paracas. When Libia has free time, she likes to go out and about. She tells us that you have to clear your head of the problems and inconvineinces that occur. Sometimes she also likes to cook one of her favorite dishes, the delicious “Cau Cau”. Due to the few resources that she has, she was only able to study up to the fifth grade of secondary school, but she would have liked to study Hospitality and Tourism.

Day to day Libia works at her variety store where she sells products for the home, gifts, ornaments, stuffed animals, and more. She works at her business around 10 hours a day and can serve up to 30 customers daily. She thinks that it is going well for her at her business because she is very friendly to the customers and offers very attractive and original products.

Libia is very grateful to the Kiva lenders since thanks to the help they have offered her she will be able to buy merchandise for her business such as ornaments, stuffed animals, glasses, watches, clothing and more. This way she will be able to buy a wider variety of products to offer her customers. This will allow her to improve her income and keep working day to day seeking to make her biggest dream come true: "being able to study Hospitality and for her business to be bigger."
