Herlinda's story

Herlinda is 24 years old and she lives in the warm city of Aguaytia. Herlinda is a humble young woman and every day she enthusiastically fights to get ahead and to support her family. With a lot of effort Herlinda has managed to start a business selling groceries. Herlinda works around ten hours per day and serves up to fifteen customers each day. Herlinda thinks that her business is going well because she is friendly with customers and offers good quality products. Herlinda is grateful to Kiva lenders as, thank to the support provided, she will be able to buy a display case for her products. Herlinda's profits will increase and she will continue fighting to make her dream of having a mini-supermarket become a reality.
