Kimberly Stefania's story

Kimberly began working two years ago at a cyber cafe, and with a loan from a family member she started her one business. Now she runs her own cyber cafe which has a strong clientele because her business is located next to the Civic Square in the Playas neighborhood. She works from 8:00 in the morning, has a one our lunch break, and then returns to work until 7:00 pm. One of her difficulties is there is some crime in her neighborhood. However, she has installed an electric door with bars to protect her business from potential robbers. Kimberly is separated and has a young son who is not yet school age. With the loan she will buy credit to recharge cell phones as well as purchase a printer and stationary. Her goal is to have a comfortable house for her son and to continue growing her business until she can have a branch in the town of Posorja.
