Emiliana Teodura's story

Emiliana, 19, is a young woman who lives in the district of Santiago, which is known for its very warm and welcoming climate. It is also known for its agriculture, especially its grape, asparagus and other crop farming. Emiliana lives with her mother who she loves very much and supports through the efforts of her work. She is a very enthusiastic young lady who is determined to get ahead. Since a very young age she learned to earn a living through hard work. She was unable to continue her education because she had to work and help her mother cover the household expenses.

She works about nine hours a day for a fumigation company. She believes work is going so well because she is very responsible and determined to get ahead despite the problems she has run into.

Emiliana is very grateful to Kiva lenders for helping her make a down payment on a small patch of land where she hopes to carry out her greatest dream: "To have her own house".
