Blanca Nidia's story

Blanca is a 19 year old young woman. She lives in the city of Imperial, along with her parents whom she loves very much and whom she supports with the income from her work. In her free time she likes to read, but above all she likes to enjoy one of her favorite traditional dishes 'sopa seca cañetana' (a pasta dish with chicken and a tomato based sauce).

With much effort and dedication, Blanca is currently studying in an academic institute in the city. This is why she works as an employee in a store that is located in her city, so that she can cover the costs of her studies. She believes she does well in her job because she is very friendly with the customers and above all because she has a strong desire to get ahead and make her parents proud.

Blanca is very thankful for the support that is being given to her by Kiva lenders, so that she can buy construction materials like cement, sand, etc. She will use the supplies to finish building the front of her house, which is made of adobe, as well as plaster the walls. In this way Blanca will be able to improve the quality of life of her parents and continue working to accomplish her biggest dream, to finish studying and be able to support her family.
