Deysi Isabel's story

Deysi is a 26-year-old woman, who lives in the city of Ica in the district of Santiago with her three young children who she loves and who are her main reason for living. She is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who puts all her energy into getting her family ahead in life as she acts as both mother and father for her children. Unfortunately Deysi was not able to pursue Secretarial studies as she had to work from a young age to help her parents.

In her free time, Deysi enjoys watching television, and she sometimes cooks delicious Chicharrones de Chancho (pork rinds) to share with her family.

Upon her own initiative, and with a lot of effort and dedication, Deysi works from day to day as a farm worker in an agricultural foundation in her city. She works from early on in the morning and she can do this for approximately 10 hours. Deysi feels at ease carrying out her work and believes that it is going well thanks to her hard work and her friendly treatment of others.

Deysi is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as it is thanks to the help given that she will be able to cover the paperwork and handling costs to close a contract for a small plot of land on which she will build her home little by little. In this way, Deysi will continue working and channeling all her energy into achieving her biggest dream which is to see her children become upstanding professionals and good men.
