Mary's story

Mary is 41 years old. She is married to Emilio and has 4 children, whom she lives with in her own home.

Mary takes care of children of single mothers in her district. She feeds them, protects them and gives them a lot of love. That is why her friends and neighbors totally trust her to leave their small children with, and pick them up after their different jobs. She has had this business for 5 years and although her job is little hard sometimes, she knows that she has to give anything so that the children are well cared for. This is her third loan with Kiva and she is grateful for the support she has received to get ahead. She is also committed to making her payments on time. With the amount of 1300 soles, she will buy toys for the children she serves and cares for in her home.
