Nelly's story

Nelly, 44, lives in the city of Pucallpa with her husband and her five children, whom she loves and who are her main purpose in life. She's a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic woman who, with her husband, devotes all her effort to getting her family ahead. Unfortunately she lacked financial resources and had to work from a very young age, so she wasn't able to study to be a nurse as she would have liked. In her free time she likes to cook delicious desserts for her family.

On her own initiative and with a lot of effort and dedication, Nelly works in her small business selling groceries and clothing. She works every day from early in the morning, and can work for approximately 10 hours. Nelly feels good about working and believes it's going well for her because of her good prices and her friendly treatment of others.

Nelly's very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help she'll be able to purchase a greater quantity and variety of groceries and clothing to supply her business.

This way Nelly can serve more customers and keep on working and making the effort to achieve her big dream of having a restaurant.
