Katherine Mirella's story

Katherine, 20, is a single young woman living with her parents in the beautiful city of Nazca. She’s a very cheerful, hardworking and enthusiastic person who very much wants to get ahead. Thanks to support from her parents she was able to satisfactorily complete her technical studies in computer sciences. In her free time she enjoys watching educational television shows and sometimes cooks a delicious “Lomo Saltado” to share with her family.

Thanks to her mother’s support and with much effort day to day, Katherine works in her small business selling cosmetics and costume jewelry. She starts selling very early in the morning and spends about 10 hours per day at her business.

Katherine is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help provided she will be able to buy two display cases and two sets of display shelving to exhibit her wares; she will also be able to paint her locale. In this way, Katherine will have her business better-equipped which she hopes will lead to increased sales and income that she intends in the not too distant future to use to expand the business and to be able to have her own house.
