Maria Luz's story

Maria is 30 years old. She lives in the city of Pisco with her husband and their two children whom they love very much. They struggle every day to be able to give them a life full of love and good examples. Maria is a very hardworking woman. In spite of the inconveniences she has faced in her life, she has not given up, and slowly started her business selling food, soft drinks, and beer. She works about ten hours at her business and she has had it for three years. She believes it is going well because she is very nice to her customers and her food has good flavor.

Maria is very grateful to the Kiva lenders since thanks to their support she will be able to purchase merchandise for her business, especially sodas and beers at wholesale prices. This will allow her to have a larger variety of products and to continue fighting to achieve her biggest dream of having her own home and giving her children a good education.
