Victoria Clorinda's story

Victoria is a 43-year old woman. She lives in the city of Camaná. She is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person who puts all her effort toward getting ahead. Unfortunately, because of her family's low income and her need to work from a very young age, Victoria wasn't able to study a profession, but she would have liked to. In her free time, she likes to watch movies and at times to prepare a delicious "chupe de camarones" (shrimp stew) to share with her family.
Of her own initiative, and with a lot of hard work and dedication, Victoria runs a small business selling fried foods. She has a small food cart where she sells hamburgers, hot dogs and fries, chicken and fries and other items. Victoria works every day for about seven hours. She believes that business is going well for her because of her food's good flavor and her friendly customer service.
Victoria is very grateful for the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help they have provided her, she will be able to purchase the construction materials she needs to make improvements to her home. And then Victoria will have a greater sense of security and well-being. She will continue working and putting for the effort needed to achieve her greatest dream: to purchase another food cart and, little by little, expand her business.
