Yessica Brigith
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.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
