Dayana Gabriela's story

Dayana is a young 18 year old woman. She is single and lives in the city of Nazca with her parents and siblings. She is a very friendly, hard working and enthusiastic person with a strong desire to get ahead. Unfortunately, Dayana has not been able to study for a professional in languages because she must work to support her parents with the household expenses. In her free time she likes to listen to music and occasionally she cooks a delicious "arroz con pollo" (rice with chicken) to share with her family. With much perseverance and dedication, and thanks to savings from previous jobs, Dayana bought a small car which she uses to rent to drivers who provide taxi service. She works everyday and believes that it is going well for her because of her responsibility and for her friendly manner that she shows to her customers. Dayana is very thankful for the Kiva lenders because thanks to the brought to her she will be able to repair and have general maintenance done on her car. She hopes to change the muffler and the tires. In this way Dayana will have her car in better condition to continue renting. She will continue working and putting the effort in to fulfill her largest dream of studying for a professional degree and getting ahead.
