A loan of $925 helped to buy construction materials.


Maritza Asucena's story

Martiza lives in the #8 area in the Nueva Guinea with her family which is made up of 2 girls and her husband. She works as a primary school teacher in the Urban area of Nueva Guinea for some 10 years. Maritza’s daughters attend school and her husband works as a cattle trader and with his earnings they are able to meet the families’ expenses and the obligations that they have since they are a very united family and have many dreams of getting ahead in life. She is grateful for the support she has received from Kiva since she has had loans previously and she was able to build a room.

This is Maritza’s third loan and it will be used to buy construction materials so that they can improve the home little by little. She is a very happy and helpful person, as well as punctual and has shown to be able to meet her payments.

Martiza’s biggest wish to improve her quality of life and that her daughters get an education and be respectable members of society.
