Elizabeth Katherin's story

Elizabeth is 21 years old and lives in the city of Chincha with her parents and siblings. She is very hard-working ad enthusiastic and has a great desire to do better than ever before. Unfortunately, due to a lack of money and because she needed to work, Elizabeth was unable to study at university.

Through her own initiative, Elizabeth has her own business selling clothes, for men, women, and children. She works every day for around ten hours and believes the work is going well because she is dedicated and puts in a lot of effort.

Elizabeth is very grateful to Kiva lenders as, thanks to this support, she will buy a greater quantity and variety of clothing items to stock up her business. With this she can continue to work and put in the effort to achieve her great dream of owning her own house.
