Doris Tatiana's story

Doris Tatiana is a 28-year old woman, married and mother of three minor children who attend school and are under her responsibility. She is from Jicaral, located in the north part of the country. In her free time she likes to enjoy quality time with her family and to cook a traditional dish in the region called Indio Viejo. Unfortunately, she could not attend university, but she would have liked to become a professional nurse. Thanks to her self-improvement spirit and her willingness to get ahead, she started her grocery store in her house and sells food products in small quantities, such as shampoo, coffee, matches, rice, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, beans and oil. She enjoys working and spends 12 hours at the store each day. She plans to use the loan to invest in working capital and buy supplies for the store, and her final goal is to improve her income in a near future. Doris Tatiana is grateful to Kiva lenders for supporting people with limited resources and making it possible for them to have decent jobs.
