Carmen Luisa's story

Carmen, 49, is a hardworking woman who lives in Ica with her family. She studied education and has worked for more than 14 years as a teacher in a prestigious school. She has three children. They are her greatest pride, and she has gotten ahead little by little so she can give them a better quality of life.

Carmen is grateful to the Kiva lenders because with their support she'll be able to buy a t.v. set for her home so she can enjoy her free time with her children. That way she'll keep on making an effort to be able to achieve one of her biggest goals: to become a prosperous entrepreneur.
