Keli Maritza's story

Keli is a hard working young woman. She is 27 years old, married, and lives in Santa with her family. She has a small son, and struggles daily to give him a better quality of life and an excellent education. For the past year she has had a business selling clothes and also one selling cakes. These are going well for her because Keli is a very responsible person, hard-working, enthusiastic, respectful and kind to her customers. Keli is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because with the help she will be able to buy merchandise to stock her business selling clothing. She will then have a larger income and in time be able to fulfill her greatest dream, "to finish building the house".
