Vilma Milagros's story

Vilma is 19 years old and lives in the city of Nazca, which is characterized by a very warm climate and also as a destination visited by many people from all over the world because of its tourist attractions. Vilma lives with her parents, whom she loves very much, and she strives each day to make them proud of her.

With hard work and above all, dedication, Vilma sells sodas and raspadillas (shaved ice drinks) on a tricycle through the streets of her city. She works around 10 hours a day and can serve up to 25 customers a day. With the fruits of her labor she can cover the costs of her studies as she is currently studying accounting. She believes that her business is doing well because she is friendly to her customers and eager to get ahead.

Vilma is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they have given her, she can buy new display cases and wood to renovate her tricycle so she can continue selling her product. This way, she can have the necessary equipment to work and above all to continue striving for her greatest dream: to finish her degree and own a home.
