Lesly Pilar's story

Lesly is 20 years old, single and lives in the city of Cañete in the Imperial district with her parents and siblings. She is a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person that has a great desire to overcome. Sadly, due to a lack of economic resources and the need to work to support her parents, Lesly hasn't been able to study Business Administration. In her free time she likes to listen to music and sometimes cook a delicious soup to share with her family.

On her own initiative, with a lot of effort and dedication, Lesly works in her small business where she sells sweets and drinks. She occupies a small space close to a tourist location in her city, and works everyday for approximately 10 hours. Lesly believes that it is going well because she has good prices and offers friendly service to her clients.

Lesly is very grateful for the Kiva lenders, now that thanks to their help she will be able to buy a larger quantity of merchandise, like soda water, mineral water, cookies, candies and other products. In this way Lesly will have a better supplied store and be able to serve more clients. She will continue working and exerting effort to achieve her dream of having a professional career.
