Digna Erlinda's story

Digna is 43 and lives in the city of Nazca with her ​​husband and two young children whom she loves and are her main reason for living. She is a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person, who along with her husband, devotes all her efforts to raising their family. Thanks to her efforts and the support of their parents, Digna was able to pursue a degree in education. In her spare time, she likes to breed birds and sometimes she cooks a delicious charqui olluquito to share with her family.

Of her own volition, with much effort and enthusiasm, Digna works in her small business selling rocoto (a type of chili). She works every day from early in the morning for about 8 hours. She feels comfortable doing the work and believes that she does well because of her good prices and the friendly service she provides to her customers.

Digna is grateful to Kiva lenders, and thanks to the help she has received, may make the purchase of construction materials such as cement, sand and others, so Digna can finish her home, such as plastering, painting and placing installations, so she will continue to work and strive to achieve her dream of providing greater security and well-being for his family.
