Marcelina's story

Marcelina, 25, is single and lives in the city of Ica with her parents and siblings. She's a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic woman with a great desire for self-improvement. Unfortunately, Marcelina hasn't been able to study law as she would like to because she lacked financial resources and needed to work to help her family. In her free time she likes to play sports, and sometimes she cooks a delicious fried fish to share with her family.

On her own initiative and with a lot of effort and dedication, Marcelina works in her small business selling baby clothing. She works every day for approximately eight hours and believes it's going well for her because of her good prices and friendly treatment of others.

Marcelina's very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help she'll be able to buy more merchandise such as bibs, layettes, and other things.

This way Marcelina's business will be better stocked and she'll be able to take care of more customers and continue working and making the effort to realize her big dream of having her own house.
