Yesica Milagros's story

Yesica Milagros is a 27 year old young woman who lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Santiago. Yesica is a young woman with an infectious charisma and above all she has a real desire to make a success of her life. Yesica put a lot of effort into studying to become a teacher but then after looking for work and not finding any she made the decision to start up her business selling food, mainly tamales, causas [a layered potato dish], cakes and other items. She makes a lot of effort to meet the household expenses from the income from her small business.

Yesica is very grateful to the Kiva lenders since the help they have given her has made it possible for her to buy building materials to keep improving her home. By doing this she can provide a better quality of life for her family and also make the shop more comfortable for her customers since it is in her house. With these improvements she will be able to continue working to make her biggest dream come true: to improve her income and help her family to get on in life.
