Fanny Rudith's story

Fanny is a woman of 29 years. She lives in the city of Ica with her young 9 year old son. Unfortunately, for various reasons she has been separated from her husband for many years. She has to act as both mother and father to her little one. She is friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic. She dedicates all her efforts to getting herself and her son ahead in life. Thanks to the support of her parents, who have always been at her side, Fanny was able to study the professional career of nursing. Unfortunately, due to the need to work and pay her bills, she has not been able to use her profession. She would like to be able to work as a nurse. In her free time, she likes to dedicate some of her time to reading. Sometimes she cooks up a delicious Ají de Gallina [shredded chicken with peppers and sauce] to share with her family. With a lot of hard work, and thanks to the support of her family, Fanny works day after day, starting early in the morning as a ticket seller at a transportation company in her city. She works about 12 hours a day, and can attend to about 75 customers. She enjoys the work and her bosses regard her highly because of her diligence and friendly treatment. Fanny is thankful for the Kiva loans. Thanks to their support, she will be able to make improvements on her home. She wants to plaster the walls and install a false floor for her home. This way Fanny will be able to keep her home in better condition, and thus be able to provide better security and well being for her young son. Little by little in the near future, she hopes to have her own business that she can use to assure the future and the education of her little one.
