Angelina's story

Angelina is a 51-year-old woman living in the city of Pucallpa. She has two adult children who she loves and are her main reason for living. For various reasons, Angelina separated from her husband many years ago and since then she’s been both father and mother to her children. She’s a very kind, hardworking woman who very much wants to get ahead. Unfortunately, Angelina was unable to study nursing because she had to go to work very young but she would have loved to have done so. In her free time she enjoys spending pleasant time with her family and sometimes cooks a delicious Chicken with Rice to pamper them with.

On her own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Angelina works in her small business selling beverages. She starts work every day very early in the morning and can work up to 12 hours daily. She thinks she does well because of the good prices she offers her customers.

Angelina is grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided she will be able to buy merchandise like soft-drinks, mineral water and beer, among others for her business. In this way, Angelina will have the business well-stocked and will be able to increase sales and income this way that will help her to gradually expand the business and become a distributorship.
