Estefany, 22, lives in the city of Cañete, in the Imperial district, with her partner and her young son, 3, whom she loves and who is her main motivation in life. She's a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who, with her husband, puts all her effort into getting her family ahead. Thanks to her effort, Estefany is taking short courses in pastry-making. In her free time she likes to cook delicious sweets and sometimes she makes a delicious Carapulcra con Sopa Seca [pork with noodles] to share with her family.

On her own initiative and with a lot of effort and enthusiasm, Estefany works as a farmworker on a farm in her city. She works every day from early in the morning and can do it for approximately eight hours. She's comfortable doing her job and believes it's going well for her because of her good performance and her friendly treatment of others.

Estefany's very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help she'll be able to buy construction materials and plastics, which will help her make repairs on the roof and the patio of her house. Currently it's made of reeds and rush, and doesn't offer much security.

She'll be able to continue working and making the effort to achieve her big dream of being a great pastry chef and having her own house built of appropriate materials.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
