Milagros Madeleine's story

Milagros is a 20-year-old single woman living in the city of Cañete, in the district of Imperial with her parents and siblings. She is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to overcome. Unfortunately, because of the lack of resources and for the necessity to work to help her family, Milagros hasn't been able to study Business Administration. In her free time she likes to play volleyball with her friends and on some occasions she cooks a delicious Arroz Verde (green rice) to share with her family.

By her own initiative, with much persistence and dedication, Milagros works in her small business selling sweets. She occupies a small space in her house, which is close to a school in her city and works everyday for about 10 hours. Milagros believes that she is doing well because of the good prices and for the friendly service that she provides her customers.

Milagros is very grateful to Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help provided she will be able to purchase a larger quantity of merchandise such as soft drinks, cookies, sweets, some school supplies, etc... This way Milagros will have her business well stocked and she will be able to assist more customers. She will be able to continue working and striving to achieve her big dream of becoming a big sweets shop-keeper who sells wholesale.
