Ivanny Nohemy's story

Ivanny is a young person of 19 years of age who lives in the city of Pisco with her partner, who she loves and is grateful to for his support. In spite of her youth, she is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person, who has a great desire to succeed. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and because she needed to work, she has been unable to study to be a nurse as she wished, but she would really like to do so. In her free time, she likes to play sport and occasionally to cook a delicious rice and duck dish to share with her family.

With lots of effort, enthusiasm and thanks to the help of her mother, Ivanny has set up a small business selling food, such as fried chicken and other fried goods. She gets up early every day to start work and can work for around 12 hours a day. She believes it is going well because of her good seasoning, dedication and the friendly manner she offers her customers.

Ivanny is very grateful to the Kiva loan givers, as thanks to the help offered she will be able to buy a table, chairs, cupboards and disposable napkins for her business. In this way, Ivanny hopes her business will be better suited and that she will be able to offer improved comfort and better service to her customers. She hopes that in this way she will be able to increase her sales and income so that little by little she can save so that in the not to distant future she can grow her business and achieve her dream of owning her own home.
