Anali Maribel's story

Anali is a 30 year old woman who lives in the city of Pisco with her two young children. She loves her children and they mean everything in the world to her. Anali is a very friendly, hard-working, enthusiastic person who puts all her efforts into providing for her family as she is both mother and father to her children. Sadly, owing to a lack of financial resources and the need to work from a very young age, Anali wasn't able to study for a degree in accountancy as she had wanted to. In her free time, she enjoys cooking a delicious 'sopa de leche' to share with her family.

On her own initiative and with a lot of dedication, Anali works in her small business selling groceries, drinks, tubers and vegetables. She works approximately 12 hours every day. She feels happy carrying out her work and she believes that her business is doing well because she charges reasonable prices and treats people in a friendly manner.

Anali is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their help, she will be able to buy a small refrigerator and a freezer. These appliances will be very helpful to her in storing the drinks and vegetables that she sells and she will be able to keep them in good condition. Anali will be able to serve more customers and will continue working to realize her big dream of owning a mini-mart.
