Mariella Margod's story

Mariella is a 31-year-old woman who lives in the city of Huaraz with her two small children, whom she loves and who are her main focus in life. She is a very kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who makes every effort to get her little ones ahead. Thanks to her hard work, Mariella was able to study law, but unfortunately she has not had much luck and has not been able to find work in this field. In her free time she likes to play with her little ones.

Thanks to her own initiative, Mariella works at her small grocery business with a great deal of effort and dedication. She sells different kinds of necessities. Mariella works every day starting early in the morning and she can go for about 12 hours. She feels comfortable doing her work and she thinks it is going well because of the nice way she treats her customers.

Mariella is very thankful to Kiva's lenders, as it is thanks to their help that she will be able to buy construction materials, such as cement, bricks, sand, and others. These will allow her to build and plaster the enclosure at the back of her house. She will keep working and applying herself to achieve her great dream of seeing her children become good professionals and good men.
