A loan of $975 helped to pay university fees.

Luz Marina's story

This is the 5th Kiva loan that Luz Marina has gotten to pay for her daughter’s university education. With the last Kiva loan she paid for the 8th university semester and with the 9th Kiva loan she will pay for the 9th. Very soon she will finish her education and be able to achieve one of her main goals and the dream of her daughter-- to be a public accountant. Luz Marina gives respect to her lenders for the great help they’ve given her daughter: “Thank you for supporting her in her education. My daughter and I thank you.” She says that it’s the only way for her daughter to get ahead since she doesn’t have a better option.
