Teresa's story

Teresa is a 53-year-old woman, lives in the city of Nazca with her husband and 7 children, who she loves and are her principle reason in life. She is a very friendly, hard-working, and enthusiastic person, who together with her husband puts forth all of her efforts to move her family forward. Unfortunately due to lack of economic resources and due to necessity, she had to work starting at a very young age and could not study toward a professional career. In her free moments she likes to listen to music. On some occasions she cooks a delicious Lomo Saltado (Peruvian dish) to share with her family.

By her initiative, and with much tenacity and dedication, Teresa works in her small business selling groceries. She works every day for approximately 8 hours a day and believes that it is going well for her due to the variety of products and the kind manner in which she treats customers.

Teresa is very thankful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help given, she will be able to purchase an increased quantity and variety of groceries, like drinks and candy. In this way, Teresa will have a better stocked business and will be able to tend to more customers. She will continue working and putting forth the effort to achieve her big dream of seeing her children in good careers.
