Victoria's story

Victoria is 42 years old and lives in the city of Ica with her son. She loves her son and says he is her main reason for living. Sadly, a little while ago she suffered the loss of her beloved husband, and since then she has dedicated all of her efforts to providing for her family. Victoria is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person with a strong desire to get ahead. Victoria was unable to study a professional career because she had to work to help her parents from a very early age. In her free moments she likes to bake delicious desserts. On her own initiative and with a lot of effort and determination, Victoria works her own small business selling food. She works every day from early in the morning for approximately six hours. Victoria feels at ease when working her business, which she thinks does well because she is a good cook and treats her customers with kindness. Victoria is very grateful to Kiva lenders, because thanks to their support, she will be able to buy a sanitary water storage tank for her home. In this way, Victoria will have a better drinking water system and will increase her family’s security and welfare. She will also continue working and striving to achieve her greatest dream, which is to see her son become a distinguished professional.
