Cinthia Monica's story

Cinthia is 21 years old and lives in the city of Ica, a generous city with a warm and inviting climate. Here farming is prevalent, especially the growing of cotton, grapes, asparagus and others. Cinthia is a very hard working young woman. At a very young age she has learned to earn her bread by the sweat of her brow, since her parents have few financial resources and for this reason she has had to work to help them.

Day in and day out Cinthia works in a small restaurant as a waitress. She works about 9 hours a day and with her income she can help with the household expenses. She believes that she is doing well at her work because she is kind and responsible.

Cinthia is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help that they provided her she will be able to make improvements to her home, such as fixing the the grass reed roof. This way she will be able to provide a better quality of life to her family and continue to struggle to achieve her big dream of attending a university.
