Virginia Soledad's story

Virginia, who is 37, lives in the city of Ica with her one-year-old son whom she loves dearly and who is the centre of her world. She is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who devotes all her energy to supporting her little one, as she is father and mother to him. Unfortunately Virginia was not able to study for a professional career, but she would very much have liked to be a primary teacher. In her free time she enjoys cooking different stews and sweets. On her own initiative, with a great deal of commitment and dedication, Virginia works in the fields at a farm in his city. Every day, from the very early hours of the morning, she does this job and can work for about 10 hours. She is happy in her work and believes that she does well on account of her commitment and the friendly way in which she treats others. Virginia is very grateful to Kiva lenders because their help will enable her to buy a fridge and a cooker, which will be very useful in allowing her to preserve and prepare her food. This will mean that Virginia will improve her own and her family's health and hygiene and will continue working and endeavouring to fulfil her great dream of owning her own home.
