Mariothi is 44 years old. She is the mother of two children, ages three and eight, whom she loves very much. She strives and works hard for them, so that she can provide them with a decent life and, above all, lots of love so that they can become better people. When she has a little spare time she enjoys listening to music very much, and she also likes eating one of her favorite dishes, which is the delicious "arroz con pollo” (rice with chicken).

She resides in the city of Nazca, which is known for its very warm weather. It is mainly an agricultural area, where particularly prickly pears, kidney beans, and lima beans are grown, among other crops. It is also home to several highly visited tourist attractions such as the Nazca Lines, the Cahuachi Cemetery, and others.

Mariothi is a very hard worker. She works at a small pharmacy, since she earned a Pharmacy Technician degree. Mariothi works about eight hours a day. She believes things are going well for her at work because she is very kind to the customers and, above all, she is a very responsible worker.

Mariothi is very grateful to Kiva lenders, because thanks to the help they have provided she will be able to purchase merchandise to start her grocery sales business (rice, sugar, milk, and other items). This will allow her to have another source of income for her home expenses, to improve her quality of life, and to be able to keep fighting every day in order to make her greatest dream come true, which is to have her own home.
