Milagros's story

Milagros is a woman with a contagious charisma. She lives in the city of Pisco, a hot-climate city with beautiful beaches and above all exquisite cuisine. Milagros is the mother of a one-year-old little one who she loves very much and is the motor for her to continue striving daily and providing all her love to. Because of her poor economic resources, she was only able to study up to second grade in elementary school and this is why she strives to provide her children with a good education so they can be better than her.

Day to day, Milagros works in her small business selling cosmetics. She offers her goods to neighbors and also covers the city streets to offer her goods. She believes she does well in her business because she’s very kind to customers and above all because she has much faith in God.

Milagros is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they’ve given her she will be able to buy more merchandise like lipstick, creams, eye shadow, blush, etc. for her business. In this way, she’ll have a wider variety of products to offer and will improve her income which will make it possible for her to make her greatest dream reality: to have a place of her own for her business and to provide her children with professions.
