Maria Evangelina
María lives in the town of Huaraz. She is a mother of two: her children are 18 and 21 years old, and she loves them very dearly after taking great pains to raise them on her own. She works as an employee in a hotel in her town and has a second job at a slaughterhouse. Thanks to the income these jobs provide, she is able to pay for household expenses, but it implies a great deal of effort, since she works about ten hours a day. María is very grateful to Kiva lenders, since, thanks to their help, she will be able to pay for her son's school-related expenses, such as books and supplies. This way, her son will have the tools to keep studying and María can keep fighting to make her dream come true: "I want my children to have a good education".
