Cristina's story

Cristina, 33 years old, is married and has a child. She has passed through many difficulties in her life until now. When she was a child, she lost her mom and all the family's hardships remained in her care. She became, at that moment, a mom and a dad to her three younger siblings as her father was working abroad to support the family.

Now being married, Cristina is repeating the same fate. She is the one who cares for her child and the house because her husband is also working abroad. Cristina has a dream: to connect her parents' house, where she lives with her family, to water and sewerage, so as not to have to bring water in from the well with a bucket. That’s why she makes an appeal to Kiva and hopes she will soon enjoy water inside the house.
