Deisy Fiorella's story

Deisy is a young woman of 28. She lives in the city of Chincha, which is noted for its people of Afro-Peruvian origin, for being the cradle of great glories of Peruvian sports, and for its beautiful beaches. It is also very well known for its food, since the people of this city are known for their good seasonings. When Deisy has some free time, she very much likes to read and above all to enjoy one of her favorite dishes, which is the very delicious Chinese-style fried rice with fried wontons.

With great effort and dedication, she has managed to study for a career in technical accounting, and thanks to this she succeeded in obtaining employment in a guest house where she works now. She works about 8 hours a day, and with the fruit of her labor she can help her mother with the household expenses. She feels that she is doing well in her work because she is responsible and honest.

Deisy is very thankful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help that they have offered her, she will be able to complete some improvements in her home -- refinish the cracked walls and improve the plumbing in the kitchen, since the water leaks and little by little it has deteriorated the walls. In this way she will be able to have a better quality of life and above all to continue striving to save to able to complete her greatest dream: "to study in the university and to help her mother."
