Isidra Magdalena's story

Pedro Vicente Maldonado is a very beautiful county. Its climate in hot and humid and its people are very kind and hardworking. This county is the arrival point for many tourists since its surroundings have lots of hotels where they can relax and be treated kindly.

Isidra, a hard-working 49-year-old woman, lives and has a business in this country. She is married and has 4 children between the ages of 24 and 15 from this long relationship. Her husband works as a teacher in a high school in the area. She has a small pizza shop. She learned a lot from this activity when she worked in the same business as a helper. One day, the owner decided the sell it and she decided to buy it since she knew it was a profitable business and she was dedicated to it. With this new investment, her business will be more attractive and will attract a better clientele. Isidra thanks Fundación Alternativa and Kiva for the opportunity that they brought.
