Mirtha Gissela's story

Mirtha is a hardworking woman who has had many inconveniences but it has not caused her to lose hope or a desire to keep living because she is the mother of an eight year old boy and every day she does whatever she can to provide him with love and above all a better life. Mirtha’s house is located in the Santiago district, where there are several agro exporter farms and Mitha works at one as a laborer. She works about nine hours per day and is able to pay the household expenses through the fruits of her labor, getting ahead through her work and because she is responsible and have a great motivation to get ahead, her son.

Mirtha is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to them she will be able to build a house our of solid materials (bricks, cement) for her children. Her current home is made of adobe (mud bricks) and in this way she can provide a better quality of life for her family and made her greatest dream come true, “Give a profession to her son.”
