Agustina Simona's story

Agustina is a 31-year-old woman. She lives in the city of Nazca with her husband and her small 5-year-old daughter, whom she loves and is her main reason for living. She is a very kind, hard-working, and enthusiastic woman, who with her husband dedicates all of her efforts to keeping her family going. Thanks to her efforts and the support of her parents, Agustina was able to study for a professional degree in obstetrics. In her free moments she likes to distract herself by watching television and in a few occasions she cooks a very delicious garlic chicken to share with her family.

Through her own initiative, Agustina works with much determination and dedication as an obstetrician in a medical post in her city. She works every day for approximately 8 hours. Agustina feels comfortable in her job since she has always liked to help others.

Agustina is very thankful to the Kiva lenders since, thanks to the help provided, she will be able to start the construction of her home. She wants to construct walls to be able to enclose her home and advance little by little. Thus, Agustina will continue working and exerting herself to be able to achieve her greatest dream of being able to provide a good quality of life for her little one, since she suffers from a terrible illness.
