Magda Yanina's story

Magda is a 33-year-old woman who lives in the city of Pisco with her partner and her six-year-old son. She has always been a hardworking and enthusiastic woman who puts all her effort into work so that she and her partner can get their family ahead. In her free time she likes to watch television with her little one and sometimes they go out for walks along the city's friendly streets. Unfortunately, she was unable to pursue her university studies because of a lack of money, but she hopes to be able to one day.

Thanks to her own initiative and the support of her partner, Magda has run her small business selling beauty products and clothing for five years now. She spends about eight hours a day at her business, during which she helps a good number of customers. Magda believes that her business is going well because she sells good products and because she treats her customers with kindness and respect.

Magda is very thankful to Kiva's lenders, as it is thanks to their help that she will be able to buy merchandise, such as perfumes, cosmetics, pants, polo shirts, sweaters, and blouses, among other things. This will allow Magda to have a better stocked business and she will be able to increase her sales and her earnings. With those earnings, she hopes to be able to secure the future and well-being of her young son little by little.
