Jenny Andrea
Jenny is 28 and has two children, one of whom is autistic. She lives in a free union; her partner is not the father of her children. Together they pay for rent, the children's education, food, and other daily expenses. Her mother-in-law is 60 and helps them pay expenses that they otherwise could not meet. Her partner is a day laborer and does not have a fixed income. Jenny earns a minimum wage, which barely covers the rent.

Her mother-in-law has helped pay Jenny's education expenses, but she is not feeling well. At times, she feels sorry for them. Though she isn't the children's grandmother, she helps Jenny and hopes she secures a loan so that her burden isn't so great. In a way, she wants them to help her.

If Jenny can finish her professional program, she could offer her children a brighter future, especially for Nicolás, who is autistic. She has not been able to find a specialized institution or school for him. The household expenses are high, and they try to keep services in line and pay the daily rent. They shop just for basic items and aren't able to go out or buy special things for the children and themselves. Her mother-in-law helps them buy things in the market most of the time.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan will help a CampoAlto student pay a semester's tuition. With seven branches throughout Bogota, Colombia, CampoAlto tailors educational programs for socially marginalized students. Each of these courses lasts three semesters on average and includes specialized training and internship placement to help students secure jobs after graduation.

This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.

About CampoAlto

CampoAlto is a for-profit education institute that offers a variety of classes to students from socially or economically marginalized groups, including women, ethnic minorities, displaced populations, disabled individuals, and those living below the poverty line. Kiva funding is being used to pay tuition for students who couldn’t otherwise afford to attend classes.

Because CampoAlto’s core business is not purely microfinance, there is some level of additional risk for lenders. For this reason, Kiva has not assigned the institute a risk rating.
