Karina Liliana
Karina is a very hardworking woman. She lives in the city of Guadalupe in the north of Peru, which is known for the kindness of its people and its agriculture, particularly cultivation of the plantain. There are many tourist attractions near Guadalupe, such as Pakatnamú, Farfán, Caracoles, Huaca Singán, the Temple of Limoncarro, Pampas de Jesús, and more. When Karina has free time she likes to enjoy one of her favorite dishes, the delicious "arroz con pato" [duck with rice]. Karina studied only up to the fifth grade of secondary school, but she would have like to have studied to be a nurse.

With much dedication, Karina has a small business in the sale of beauty products, like perfumes, creams, makeup, etc. She works around 8 hours a day and can help up to 20 clients a day. She believes that her business is doing well because she is very kind to her customers and offers quality products.

Karina is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their support she can buy more merchandise for her business such as creams, perfumes and more, and with this she will have more variety of products to offer her clients. Because of this she can increase her income and keep fighting to make her biggest dream a reality: "To have a large location for her business."
