Rosa Lucia's story
Rosa is a 27 year old young woman, and she is single. She lives in the city of Ica in the Parcona district with her parents, whom she loves very much. She is grateful for all of their support. Rosa is a very kind, hard-working, and enthusiastic person. She puts all of her efforts into getting ahead. Sadly, due to the lack of financial resources and the need to work, Rosa was not able to study the business administration profession that she would have liked to. In her free time she likes to listen to music. Sometimes she makes the delicious ‘Tallarines Rojos’ [similar to spaghetti] to share with her family. On her own initiative, and with great determination and dedication, Rosa works as a cashier at an internet cafe in her city. She provides customer services, and she works every day. She starts at the very early hours of the morning, and she is able to work for approximately ten hours. Rosa likes doing her work, and she believes that it is going well for her due to the kind way that she treats others. Rosa is very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help they have provided, she will be able to buy a stove. She currently has a kerosene stove, which is damaged, and using it is dangerous. This way she and her family will be safer and better off when preparing their food. This way Rosa will continue working and putting forth great effort in order to fulfill her big dream of being able to study for a professional career.
