Estefany's story

Estefany is a 22-year-old youth. She lives with her husband, and together they have a son whom she loves a lot, and he is her reason for living. She lives in the city of Imperial, a city characterized by its warm climate, agriculture and especially by the generosity of its inhabitants. Estefany works in the field and her husband in construction and also driving a rickshaw. He works about 10 hours a day and can serve up to 15 customers a day. He always has a good attitude with others, which is why she believes that things are going well for her husband in his business - because he is a hard worker and very respectful, and also because their kids are the motor that they have to get ahead. Estefany is very grateful to Kiva lenders since, thanks to the support they are providing, she will be able to buy a rickshaw so that her husband can continue working. With this improvement, they will no longer have to pay rent and in this way will have greater income and will continue working to achieve their biggest dream: “to have their own home and to give their son a profession.”
