Diana Ysabel's story

Diana is an enterprising youth. She is 20 years old, single, and lives in Pachacamac with her family. Diana has a small child who is her main motivation to continue ahead. Being a very young single mother, she had to find a way to survive. She is a person who is very strong and innovative. Gradually, with a lot of effort and dedication, she managed to open up a small beauty salon. The business is doing very well, because she is very responsible and hardworking, and because she prepared herself to enter this occupation by studying for a degree. Diana is grateful to the Kiva lenders, because with the support that they are providing, she will be able to buy scissors and hair dryers to equip her business. This way, she will have more customers and more income, and will be able to improve her family's quality of life with the money she obtains. She will continue to strive to make her greatest dream a reality: "to expand her business."
