Fiorella Carolina's story

Fiorella, 21, is a young woman living in the city of Ica with her parents and little girl. Sadly, she’s a single mother. She’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic woman who focuses all her efforts into moving her family forward. Because of the lack of economic resources and because she needed to go to work she was unfortunately unable to study nursing like she would have liked to but would very much like to do so someday. In her free time she enjoys relaxing listening to music and sometimes cooks a delicious “Ají de Gallina” to share with her family.

With much effort and enthusiasm, Fiorella works day to day as a laborer on a large agricultural estate in her city. She heads out to her place of work very early every morning to start work. She might work up to 12 hours daily and believes she does well because of the good way she carries out her duties and because of the kind way she treats others.

Fiorella is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided her she will be able to build a room. To do so, she will buy supplies like adobe, cement, sugarcane stalks, sand and others. In this way, Fiorella will have a room to live in with her little girl and she hopes this way to provide better security and wellbeing for her family and she can continue working and striving so that she and her family can get ahead.
