Asunta Beatriz's story

Asunta is 25 years old and married. She lives alongside her husband and her wonderful children who are 2 and 3 years old. Asunta loves her children dearly and she does everything possible to see them happy. They are her biggest motivation in making progress in life. Whenever Asunta has a little free time, she really enjoys going out for walks with her children and, above all, she enjoys preparing one of her favorite dishes: chicken and rice. Asunta was only able to study up to the fifth year of her secondary education but she would have liked to have studied to become a nurse.

Asunta works very happily each day in her business selling groceries. She also rents a car which is used to provide a taxi service. She works around 8 hours a day and can serve up to 15 customers a day. She believes that she is doing well in her business because she is very friendly with her customers and has a great desire to do well in life.

Asunta is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to the help they have provided, she will be able to buy spare parts for her car which has a number of mechanical problems. She will also buy merchandise for her grocery business such as rice, noodles, tuna, etc. In this way, she will be able to continue working towards making her biggest dream come true: to provide her children with a good education and to buy her own home.
