Elizabeth Violeta's story

Elizabeth is a 20-year-old woman. She lives in the city of Ica with her parents and her small son, who she loves and is her main reason for living. She is a very kind, hard-working, and enthusiastic woman who focuses all of her efforts on raising her child since she is mother and father to him. Thanks to her efforts and the support of her parents, Elizabeth was able to study cosmetology. In her free time she likes to dance and sometimes she cooks some delicious desserts to share with her family.

Through her own initiative, with much determination and dedication, Elizabeth works in a beauty salon providing haircuts, makeup, manicures, and other services. She works every day for approximately 8 hours, and believes that it is going well for her because of her good performance and because of the kind treatment she provides to her customers.

Elizabeth is very appreciative to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help provided, she will be able to purchase accessories to expand her work, like scissors, dyes, gloves, aprons, hooks, and others. She will therefore continue working and striving to achieve her great dream of having her own beauty salon.
