Priscila Briggit T's story

Priscila is 28 and lives in the city of Pucallpa with her beloved husband and young daughter, who are her reason for living. She is friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic. She and her husband focus all their efforts on helping the family get ahead. Sadly, because she lacked resources to go to school and began working at an early age, Priscila wasn't able to become a professional cook. In her free time, she likes to clean and decorate her house and occasionally cook a delicious sardines with vegetables dish to share with her family.

On her own initiative and with hard work, Priscila works in her small business selling regional foods. She also offers dressmaking and alterations service. She works every day for about 10 hours and believes her business is doing well because she offers tasty food and friendly service to her customers.

Priscila is grateful to Kiva lenders, as their support will allow her to buy a motor taxi, with which she and her husband can offer transport service in the city. She will be able to continue working hard to achieve her big dream of giving her daughter a good education.
