Gisela Marilin
Gisela, 22, lives with her parents in the district of Parcona. She's the mother of a small child, age 1, whom she loves very much and for whom she works every day so she can give him a better life.

This is why Gisela works every day as a vendor in a hardware store in her district. She works around eight hours a day and, with the fruit of her labor, helps her parents and gets her child ahead, because the father of her child abandoned her and she became both father and mother.

Gisela's very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their support she'll be able to buy medicine for her little one, who's sick and the medicine is very expensive.

This way Gisela will be able to cure her son and relieve her worry. She'll be able to work more peacefully and continue striving and working to make her biggest dream come true: "To give her child a career and to be able to study in the university."
