Katherine Yuliana's story

Katherine is 23 years old. She lives in Ica with her partner and two young children, whom she loves and who are her main reason for living. She is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who, along with her partner, dedicates all of her efforts to provide for her family.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and the need to begin working, Katherine was not able to study a professional nursing degree, but she would have really liked to do so. She likes to read in her free time, and sometimes she cooks a delicious rice and chicken dish to share with her family.

On her own initiative and with plenty of effort and dedication, Katherine works in her small business selling clothing. She also rents out costumes. She works every day for 8 hours, beginning in the early morning. She is happy with her work and she believes that it is going well due to the friendly manner in which she treats her clients.

Katherine is very grateful for the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help, she will be able to buy construction materials such as cement, bricks, and sand, among others. She would like to finish the construction of a room in her home. She will then be able to provide better security and well-being for her family. She will continue working and striving to make her greatest dream come true: to expand her business and own a large store.
