Clemencia Doralisa's story

Clemencia is a very dedicated and loving woman. She is the mother of three children whom she has raised with much love and effort, since the father of her children separated from her. Her house is located in the city of Ica, a city characterized by having a warm climate in every season of the year and also for being visited by a countless number of tourists who want to see the Huacachina Lagoon. It is also a city characterized by its agriculture, especially the cultivation of asparagus, cotton, and grapes. When Clemencia has free time, she likes to watch television, especially her favorite soap operas. She also likes to prepare one of the dishes that she likes most, which is the very delicious chicken with rice. Clemencia only went to secondary school, since her parents had few economic resources, but she would have very much liked to study to be a teacher.

Day after day Clemincia opens her beverage sales business, where she sells soft drinks, cold beverages, and beer. She works about 12 hours a day and can serve up to 30 customers a day. She feels that her business is going well for her because she offers good service to her customers.

Clemencia is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since this is the second time they have offered her their great help, and on this occasion she will be able to improve her house, since she will refurbish her floor and walls and thus improve her quality of life, and she will continue striving to make her great dream a reality: to have a better quality of life.
