Rosario Del Carmen's story

Rosario is 37 years old and lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Parcona. She is a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person who devotes all of her efforts to get ahead. Unfortunately, due to lack of financial resources and the need to work at a very young age, Rosario was not able to study for a professional degree. In her spare time she enjoys watching TV, and at times she cooks the rich "Rice with Lima Beans" dish to share with her family.

At her own initiative, and with a lot of commitment and dedication, Rosario works in her small business selling clothing. She works every day for about 10 hours, and she believes that the business is doing well because of her good prices and because of the friendly service she provides to her customers.

Rosario is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, because thanks to the help that they are providing, she will be able to buy a large quantity and variety of garments to stock up her business. Now she will be able to serve more customers, and so in this way Rosario will continue to work and exert herself in order to achieve her greatest dream: to have her own sales stall in the central market of her city.
