Katya Karen's story

Katya is 21 and lives in the city of Pucallpa with her partner. She is a very friendly and enthusiastic worker who has a great desire to excel. Thanks to her efforts and the support of her parents, Katya was able to study business administration. In her spare time, she enjoys watching movies and on occasion, she makes a delicious ceviche to share with her family.

Of her own initiative, with much effort and dedication, Katya works as an administrative assistant at a transportation service in the city. She works every day from early in the morning for about 8 hours; she feels comfortable doing her work and believes that she does well due to her good performance and the kindness to others.

Katya is very grateful to Kiva lenders, and thanks to the help she has received, she can buy the season's clothing and shoes. Katya wants to start a small business selling clothes, so she will continue to work and strive to succeed and achieve her dream of owning a home.
