Dallanna Geraldine's story

Dallana lives in the city of Ica, which is warm, surrounded by wonderful sand dunes and near the Oasis of Huacachina. She is young, with a contagious happiness and a strong desire to get ahead, which she says is very important to her.

Dallana had to work a job from a very early age because her parents had few economic resources. For this reason she was able to study only through secondary school, but she would have liked to go to university.

Dallana works daily in a cybercafé, where she works around eight hours each day and is in charge of waiting on the customers. At the same time she has a small business selling clothing to the people in her neighborhood. She believes she is getting ahead because she is responsible and above all honest.

Dallana is very grateful to Kiva lenders because it is thanks to their help that she will be able to buy merchandise such as shirts, polo shirts and pants, among others. In this way she will be able to offer a greater variety of products and increase her income, while at the same time continuing to work everyday to make her greatest dream a reality: to have her own home.
