Deysy Yaneth's story

Deysy, 22, lives in the city of Aguaytia, a city with a hot climate, beautiful scenery and varied cuisine. She’s a single mother who strives daily to move her little two-year-old son forward. For Deysy, her little son is the most important thing in her life so she gives him all her love. She learned to work when still very young since she had few economic resources and was only able to study up to fifth year in secondary school but she would have liked to have studied accounting.

Deysy rises very early every day to open her small sewing shop. She spends about 9 hours daily at work and can take care of up to 5 customers daily. She believes she’s getting ahead in her business because she’s responsible and doesn’t disappoint her customers.

Deysy is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they are giving her she will be able to buy a small plot of land because she currently lives in a rented house and this way she’ll be able to have a house of her own and have a space of her own for her business so she can continue striving toward making her greatest dream reality: to provide her son with a profession and for her to study accounting.
