Ruddy Aracely's story

Ruddy is 24 years old and lives in Huaraz with her three year old son, whom she loves very much and is her main reason for living. She is a friendly, hardworking, enthusiastic woman who puts forth all of her efforts to getting her son ahead. Unfortunately she was not able to study for a professional career due to a lack of resources, but she would have liked to do so. She likes to work in her spare time and sometimes prepares a delicious chicken and rice dish to share with her family. On her own initiative, and with much dedication, Ruddy works her small business selling groceries. She works daily from early morning for about 12 hours. She believes that things are going well for her because of the good prices and friendly service she gives her customers. Ruddy is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, because thanks to them she will be able to buy merchandise such as rice, sugar, milk, vegetables, drinks, and other things. In this way she will be able to stock her store and serve more customers. Ruddy will be able to continue working and making an effort to achieve her greatest dream of having her own mini market.
