Giovana Patricia's story

Giovana is a woman with a strong will to get ahead in life. Despite of the difficulties she faces, she keeps fighting to improve every day. Giovana lives in the city of Pisco, a city with a warm and cozy climate and beaches that are popular with tourists.

Giovana works as a kitchen assistant in a small restaurant. She works around ten hours per day and with the fruits of her labor she can help her parents with the home expenses. She believes she is successful because she is responsible and is a good cook.

Giovana appreciates the help that Kiva lenders give her, because she will be able to buy materials to improve her parents’ house. In particular, she wants to build a fence and improve the front of the house, which will result in better safety conditions. She will continue pursuing her biggest dream: “to study gastronomy and become a great chef.”
