Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth, 22, lives in the city of Imperial, a city of varied climate where agriculture abounds especially growing corn and apples, among others. Elizabeth is the mother of a little two-year old girl who she loves very much and for whom she strives daily to be able to move her forward. Elizabeth is a young woman who very much wants to get ahead. This is why after much effort and saving she managed to start her own business selling children’s clothes. She works about 9 hours daily because she’s able with much effort to cover some of her household expenses with the fruits of her labor. Elizabeth believes that she’s getting ahead because she’s very gracious to customers and always offers good quality products at low price. Elizabeth is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given her she will be able to buy children’s winter clothes like little sweaters, jackets, pants and sweatshirts, among others. She will thus be able to improve her income and have a wider selection of products on hand to offer her customers and she will be able to continue striving to reach her greatest dream: to provide her child with a profession and in future to have a space of her own for her business.
