Maritza Elizabeth's story

Maritza is 22 years old and lives in the city of Imperial with her young two year old daughter, whom she loves very much and is the main reason for her existence. She is a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic lady who puts forth all of her efforts to getting her family ahead. Maritza was able to study for a professional career in nursing, thanks to her parents’ effort and support. She likes to play with her young daughter in her spare time and likes to prepare a delicious green rice dish to share with her family.

Maritza places great emphasis into her grocery business and works every day from early in the morning for about 10 hours. She feels comfortable in her work and believes that things are going well for her because of the good prices and friendly service she gives her customers.

Maritza is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because she was able to buy building materials that helped her build a façade in the front part of her house. She will continue working and making an effort to achieve her greatest dream of making it possible for her daughter to become a professional woman of means.
