Jenny Marcela's story

Jenny Marcela came from Cali to the town of Bogotá in search of a better life for herself and her family. Her mother being sole responsible for the household and having very little in the way of resources, she cannot help Jenny pay for her studies. Jenny came to Bogotá alone and with her head full of projects and dreams, her most cherished one being to keep studying and become a cosmetics specialist and beautician, the profession of her dreams. She has always thought that it is important to make people beautiful in order to give them better health, a better quality of life, and, above all, more self-confidence. She learned about Campo Alto teaching institute by reading a leaflet and went there in person to gather more information about pursuing her dreams. She got seasonal work in the city and was thus able to pay registration fees for the first semester, which went from August to December. Just when she was wondering how she would pay for the next semester, she learned about Kiva loans. Thanks to this loan, she will have to pay less per month and will be able to finish her studies and achieve her goal.
