Maria Del Rosario's story

María, 41, lives in the city of Pisco, a city with a hot climate, beautiful tourist sites and a varied, delicious cuisine. She’ the mother of two children who are 16 and 19 who she loves very much and for whom she’d give her life to make them happy and above all to give them a proper life.

María is very charismatic and above all very much wants to get ahead which is why María works every day in a small business selling juices and sandwiches. She works about 9 hours daily and can see up to 30 customers per day. She believes she’s doing well because she’s nice to her customers and above all because she’s a very tasty cook.

María is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they’ve given her she will be able to buy two blenders, a table and chairs, among others that will improve her business because she’ll be able to take care of customers more quickly thus improving her income and continuing to strive to make her greatest dream reality: to finish building her house.
