Fiorella Antonia's story

Fiorella is 27 years old, and lives in the city of Nazca with her two children, who she loves and are her main reason for living. She is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person. She gives her all to providing for her family, as she is both the mother and father to her little ones. Unfortunately, due to a lack of money and the need to work from a young age, Fiorella was unable to study professional Agriculture, but she would have really liked to. In her free time, she enjoys listening to music and sometimes, she cooks delicious pasta with tomato sauce to share with her family.

With huge amounts of effort and dedication, and thanks to the support of her grandfather, Fiorella farms her small plot, where she grows various crops. She works approximately eight hours every day, and thinks that she is doing well thanks to her experience and efforts.

Fiorella is very grateful to Kiva lenders, because thanks to their help she can cover the costs of watering and fertilizing her crop. In this way, Fiorella will be able to get a good harvest, and continue to work to achieve her big dream of succeeding with the plot of land she inherited from her grandparents.
