A loan of $400 helped to make home improvements.

Rosa Haydee's story

Rosa is a 32-year-old woman. She lives in the city of Ica in the district of Santiago with her husband and two small daughters, who she loves and are her main reason for living. She is a very kind, hard-working and enthusiastic person who, together with her husband, dedicates all her efforts to getting their family ahead. Unfortunately, when she was little she suffered the loss of her mother. Since then she has devoted herself to supporting her father and brothers. Due to that and the need to work, she wasn’t able to study the professional career of obstetrics that she so wanted but she would have liked very much to have been able do so. In her free time she likes to pamper her family, inviting them to eat the delicious “Pollo a la Brasa” (a traditional Peruvian grilled chicken dish), which is a favorite dish of theirs.

On her own initiative, with a lot of effort and dedication, Rosa works in the fields on a large agricultural farm in her city. She works every day from the early hours of the morning and can do it for approximately eight hours. She feels comfortable doing her job and believes that it is going well for her because of her good performance and because of her kind treatment of others.

Rosa is very grateful to the Kiva lenders since thanks to the help provided she will be able to carry out some home improvements, as she wants to be able to plaster, paint and lay down a concrete floor in the room of her daughters. In this way she will be able to provide them with a suitable environment, with better security and comfort for them. Thus Rosa will continue working and striving to achieve her great dream of seeing her daughters become good professionals.
