Carito Pierina's story

Carito, 21, lives in the city of Nazca with her little boy who she loves and is her main reason for living; she’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who very much wants to get ahead. Thanks to her efforts and support from her mother, Carito was able to study the career of flight hostess but due to various reasons has not been able to work in her profession. She enjoys listening to music in her free time and on occasion cooks her favorite dish: Lima Beans with Steak.

With much effort and dedication, Carito works as a receptionist in a hotel in her city. She starts work early in the morning every day. She can work about 8 hours daily and believes that she does well because of the kind and cordial customer service she provides.

Carito is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided she will be able to buy a used car that will be very useful for her to provide tour guide services. In this way, Carito hopes to start her own tourism business shortly to continue working and striving toward making her great dream a reality: to own a house and provide her little one with a good education.
