Milagros Luisa's story

Milagros is an enterprising young woman. She is 22 years old, single and lives in Parcona with her husband and daughter.

Milagros has a rickshaw; she has been renting it out for over two years. The income from this motorcycle taxi allows Milagros to cover household costs, and she is able to spend more time with her young daughter.

Milagros has a great desire to prosper. Her biggest motivation is her daughter and Milagros fights to offer her a better future.

Milagros is grateful to Kiva lenders as, thanks to their support, she will be able to fix the roof of her home before winter comes. With the roof fixed, Milagros' daughter will feel safer and more secure in her home. With this loan, Milagros can through a lot of effort and dedication achieve her dream, of building a house made with stronger material in the future.
