Francisca's story

Francisca, 56, lives in the city of Chiclayo in the district of Guadalupe. She lives with her son, whom she loves and is the most important thing in her life. She is a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic lady, who devotes all her time and effort into raising her son. Francisca has always been both a father and mother to him.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources Francisca had to start work from a young age to help her parents and could not pursue a professional career. In her spare time, she likes to raise and care for animals and sometimes cooks a delicious fried fish dish to share with her family.
Using her own initiative, and with much effort and dedication, Francisca works as a kitchen helper in a restaurant in her hometown. In addition, she also sells beauty products. She works every day, usually for around 10 hours. She enjoys her work and believes that her success is due to her good performance and the kind treatment she gives others.

Francisca is very grateful to Kiva lenders. Thanks to their assistance she will be able to purchase doors, windows and roofing sheets to help build her home, as she wants to move in as soon as possible. This loan will provide greater comfort and security for Francisca and her family, and she will continue to work and strive to achieve her dream of owning her own restaurant.
