Corina's story

Corina is 32 years old and lives in the city of Aguaytia. In order to support her family she works in her small business selling groceries and drinks. She started her business with a lot of effort and after several months of saving money. Corina works approximately 10 hours a day and can wait on up to 15 customers a day. In addition she makes clothing and is able to generate extra income for her household. She feels that she is doing well in her business because she is friendly with her customers and offers them good products.

Corina is grateful to Kiva lenders since with their support she will be able to buy construction materials. Currently her house is in poor condition and the loan will enable her to repair the roof, thereby improving her quality of life. She will continue striving to make her dream a reality, that of having a shop making children’s clothing.
