Ethel Marilyn's story

Ethel ia a 19 year old young woman. She lives in the city of Chinca with her two small children. She loves them, and they are her pride and joy. She is a very friendly, hard-working, and enthusiastic person. She puts all of her efforts into getting her family ahead. This is because she is father and mother to her children. Sadly, due to the lack of financials resources and because she has to work, Ethel has not been able to study business administration.

On her own initiative, Ethel works as a kitchen helper in a restaurant in her city. She works every day for approximately ten hours. She believes that it is going well for her because of her performance and the friendly way that she treats others.

Ethel is very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help they have provided, she will buy supplies in order to be able to sell ‘salchipollos’ [fried potatoes with fried chicken], hamburgers, and other snacks. This way Ethel hopes to get more income, which will help her a lot in order to be able to keep moving forward for the good of her children.
