Mayra Jaida
Mayra, 25, is a young mother. Her little boy is four-years-old and the greatest gift God could have given her; he’s her reason to live and to continue striving daily since his father abandoned them and she’s become both mother and father for her son. Her house is located in the city of Ica’s Santiago district in Peru. Santiago district is noted for its hot, welcoming climate. Agriculture, especially cotton, grapes and asparagus, among others is also common here. Mayra is a very hardworking woman but whenever she has free time available she likes going out strolling with her little one and occasionally to watch television. She also enjoys one of her favorite dishes, the very delicious “Juanes.” [Seasoned rice wrapped in a green bijao leaf. Seasoning typically includes turmeric and cumin, giving the rice a warm flavor and a yellowish color. Most juanes also contain a small piece of chicken, a slice of egg and an olive or two]

Mayra works day to day as a day laborer on a large agricultural estate. She works around 8 hours daily and is able to cover household expenses with the fruits of her labor. She believes she does well at work because she’s very responsible and above all because she wants to get ahead and be her son’s pride.

Mayra is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they’ve given her she will be able to buy doors and windows for her house since she’s gradually building it out of substantial materials. Her windows are currently cardboard and plastic. She’ll be able to provide her family with better quality of life this way and continue striving and working daily towards making her greatest dream reality: to give her son a good education and to be able to study a university career.
