Vilma Lily's story

Vilma Lily is originally from the city of Ocosingo, Chiapas, She came to Piedras Negras 3 years ago, hand in hand with her children. She is a single mother and moved for economic reasons. The place where she lived before had very little work, she wanted to get ahead and offer her children a better future. Today her children study and work. She says they are very responsible and she is proud of them.

Vilma Lily wants to continue doing her business, which is selling used clothing. She has been doing this for the past year and it is going well for her. She is a friendly, stable and likable person whose only desire is to get ahead.

Vilma Lily is asking for support through Kiva to be able to buy merchandise for her business, to stock products which she does not already have. Thus creating greater income so that soon she can get her own home. She won't have to pay rent and can pass it on as an inheritance to her children.
