Flor Maria's story

Flor is a 20-year-old young woman. She is very enthusiastic and is very eager to get ahead in life. Her home is located in the city of Pisco, a city characterized by having a warm and welcoming climate, beautiful beaches, and above all very pretty tourist attractions that are visited by many tourists throughout the entire year. Flor is very cheerful and when she has free time available she really likes to play volleyball with her friends and neighbors in the neighborhood, as well as being able to enjoy one of her favorite dishes which is the flavorful "arroz con pato" (duck and rice).

Day to day Flor works very hard in her small business of selling beauty products. She works about 10 hours a day and can care for up to 20 customers per day. She is very friendly and especially charismatic, and for this reason she believes her business is going well.

Flor is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they have offered her she will be able to buy goods for her business like lip balm, creams, perfumes, shadows, and also counters so she can display her products in a better way and increase her sales. In this way Flor will be able to continue working and fight to make her greatest dream a reality - to have her own house and her own store for her business.
