Sara Ilma's story

Sara is 30 years old. She lives with her small son, whom she loves very much, and for whom she works hard every day, so that she can give him a decent life. Above all, she wants to see him become a person of worth.

Sara is raising her son on her own, as her child's father abandoned her when her son was still a baby. From that time, Sara became father and mother for him.

With much effort, and especially dedication and saving, Sara managed to start her business selling fruit and groceries from her home. She has been working in her business for around two years, and in that time has learned a great deal. Above all, she has made progress little by little.

She believes her business is going well because of her good customer service, and especially because of her desire to succeed.

Sara is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as thanks to the help they have offered her, she will be able to buy merchandise for her business, such as children's clothing: including pants, T-shirts, track suits and other items. This way she will be able to improve her income and so keep moving forward so that she can realize her great dream: "To give my son a good education."
