Sais Suleve's story

Sais is a young 20-year-old woman and the mother of a young one-year-old son whom she loves very much and who she raises alone since his father abandoned him and due to that she has become both the mother and father of her child.

Her home is located in the city of Ica, which is characterized by its warm climate and for developing agriculture and livestock. In the evenings after arriving from work she likes to tell her child stories to help him sleep and then she really loves to read some books.

Due to her limited financial resources she could only study up until the fifth grade of secondary school but she would have liked to have a university degree.

Day-to-day, Sais works as a helper in a small store that sells watches. She works around nine hours a day and believes her work is going well for her because she is very nice with the clients and above all because she is responsible and very eager to get ahead.

Sais is very thankful to the Kiva lenders as, thanks to the help they have offered her, she can buy a stove for her home since currently she only has a Kerosene stove and a few months ago she almost had an accident. For that reason, with this improvement she will have a better quality of life and most importantly she can have better security. She will continue fighting to be able to make her biggest dream come true: "To provide her son a good education and to have her own business."
