Jossely Karolina's story

Jossely is a young woman of 19 years old. She lives in the city of Pisco, a city that is characterized by its hot weather, beautiful beaches and its agriculture, particularly the cultivation of cotton, corn and fish. We can also find here one of the most visited tourist attractions of the city which is the islands of Ballesta and Candelabro de Paracas. Jossely enjoys preparing desserts in her free time and above all likes to cook of her favorite plates, which is the rich "Cau Cau". Due to her limited economic resources, she could only study up to the fifth year of secondary school but she would have enjoyed much to study administration.

With much enthusiasm, Jossely works in her small business selling clothing. She works about 10 hours a day attends to up to 30 customers daily. She believes that her business is going very well for her because she works very hard, is friends with her customers and above all because she works with a great desire to get ahead. Further, thanks to her job she can support the household expenses.

Jossely is very thankful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help that they have brought her she will be able to buy merchandise for her business including blouses, pants, polo shirts, sweaters and jogging suits, among other items. In this way she will be able to have a greater variety of products and improve her income, which will allow her to continue growing and fighting to make her largest dream come true: "To study the career of administration and support her parents that she loves so much".
Jossely está muy agradecida con los prestatarios Kiva ya que gracias a la ayuda que le han brindado ella podrá comprar mercadería para su negocio como blusas, pantalones, polos, chompas, buzos, entre otros, así de esta manera ella podrá tener mayor variedad de productos y mejorar sus ingresos, lo que le permitirá seguir creciendo y seguir luchando para hacer realidad su mas grande sueño:” Estudiar la carrera de administración y apoyar a sus padres que tanto los quiere”.
