Greysi Stefania's story

Greysi is a 22 year old woman and lives in the city of Ica in the district of Santiago with her young four year old daughter who she loves and is her main focus in life. She is a very friendly, hard working and enthusiastic person who puts all of her efforts into getting her young daughter ahead, as she must be mother and father for her. Unfortunately because of a lack of resources and the need to work to cover her expenses, she could not study a professional career of Business Administration but she dreams of being able to do so. In her free time she likes to cook delicious noodles to share with her family.

Upon her own initiative and with much perseverance and dedication, Greysi works in her small business selling beauty products and also, during the school year, she sells backbacks, lunch boxes and other items. She works about 10 hours daily and believes that it is going well for her because of her good prices and the friendly service that she offers her customers.

Greysi is very thankful for the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help brought forth, she will be able to buy merchandise for her business, including backpacks, lunch boxes, pouches and other items. In this way, she will have her business better stocked and be able to attend to more customers. Greysi will continue working and putting in the effort to achieve her greatest dream of being able to study a professional career and get ahead, little by little.
