Catherine Sandy's story

Catherine is a 22-year-old woman who lives in the city of Pisco together with her parents and an aunt. She loves her family and is grateful for all the support they have given her. Catherine is a very kind, keen, hard-working person who has a great desire to do well in life. Unfortunately, Catherine was not able to study for a degree but she would have very much liked to have done so, so that she could become a successful businessperson.

On her own initiative and with a lot of hard work and dedication, Catherine works in her small business every day selling beauty products. She works from early in the morning. Catherine has a small space in her home where she makes her sales. She can work approximately eight hours a day and believes that her business is doing well because she has a good range of products and treats her customers in a friendly manner.

Catherine is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their help, she will be able to buy merchandise for her business such as makeup, creams, cosmetics, talcum powder and other beauty products. This will enable her to have a better-stocked business and she hopes thereby to increase her sales and her income. This will be very helpful to her in gradually expanding her business and making progress.
