Olinda Maribel's story

Olinda is a 32 year old woman living in the city of Pisco together with her husband and two young children. She is a very kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who puts all of her effort into getting her family ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and the need to work, Olinda was not able to study toward a professional career in Accounting, as she had hoped.

Of her own initiative, Olinda works in her grocery store selling food and beverages. She works about 12 hours a day, everyday, and she believes her dedication and the good prices she offers her customers work well for her store.

Olinda is very grateful to Kiva donors. Thanks to the help they have provided Olinda will purchase a greater quantity and variety of merchandise and thus be able to continue working and striving to achieve her dream of owning her own mini-market.
