Jennifer Mercedes's story

Jennifer is a young 24-year-old woman. She is very hardworking and earnest. In her day to day, she spends her time serving others given that she works as a nurse in a health center in her city. This good young person, with a peaceful smile, is the single mother of one child. Her family is her main support and source of good energy to try to be better each day.

The house in which Jennifer and her loved ones live does not have a restroom in good condition given that the pipes have largely deteriorated with the passing of time. This situation has become a danger to Jennifer and her family's health, which is why she has applied for a sanitation loan from Kiva together with MiCrédito, with which she plans to buy new pipes, a tank, toilet, sink, and other construction materials. In the future, she wants to be able to apply for a loan that will allow her to improve the infrastructure of her home.
