Marina Consuelo's story

Marina is a 58 year old woman who lives in the city of Pisco with her two children, who she loves and who are the principle reason for her life. She is a very kind, hard-working and enthusiastic person, who always has dedicated all of her efforts in order to help her family get ahead. She has been both father and mother to her children. Sadly, Marina was not able to study for a professional career in Gastronomy, but she very much would have liked to do so. In her free time she likes to play sports and on occasion she makes a delicious Rice with Duck dish to share with her family.

With much hard-work and dedication, day by day Marina works in her small business selling food. She has a small stall for sales in a commercial center in her city. Marina works every day from early in the morning and stays for approximately 8 hours. She believes that things are going well because of her good seasonings and for the kind treatment that she offers to her clients.

Marina is very thankful for Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help she will be able to purchase construction materials like cement and ceramic in order to renovate the stall where she makes sales. In this way Marina hopes to continue working and challenging herself so that together with her family they can get ahead.
