Yessica Brigith's story

Yessica, 21, lives in the city of Pisco, a city noted for its hot, welcoming climate. Agriculture is common here too, especially cotton, broad bean and corn, among others. When she has free time available she likes to play volleyball with her neighbors and also loves to eat one of her favorite dishes, the delicious “Arroz con Pato” [Chicken with Duck]. Because of her limited economic resources she was only able to study up to fifth grade in secondary school but she would have liked to have studied a university career.

She works hard as an employee in a firm for about 8 hours daily and is able to help with household expenses that way. She believes that she does well at work because she’s responsible and she has a strong drive to get ahead.

Yessica is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they’ve given her she will be able to buy supplies like cement, sand and paint, among others to do some home improvements which will improve her quality of life too. She will improve her quality of life and continue working hard to make her greatest dream a reality: to own a business and a house.
