A loan of $1,450 helped to purchase a plot of land to build her house.


Julia's story

Julia has worked in food service for awhile. She started, as is common, as a potato peeler and little by little she rose up until she got to where she is today. Before, Julia suffered a lot, since she had to learn about life on her own, without any help. After leaving her home, she confronted various problems and people that hindered her from getting a secure job. She even worked until the wee hours of the night and morning. Now Julia is coming to our institution to get a loan, which she will invest in buying a plot, on which she will build a house. The Kiva loans awakened her interest and she is applying to be able to have her own home. Julia dreams of having many comforts and little by little gaining more things that she can give to her family in the future.
