Heydi's story

Heydi is 24 years old. She lives in the city of Ica, in the Santiago district, with her parents and her young 5 year old son,whom she loves and is her main reason for living. She is very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic, and she makes all efforts to improve the life of her son. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial recourses and because she needed to work starting at a very young age, Heydi was not able to study for a professional career in Agronomy. In her free time she likes to prepare delicious desserts to share with her family.

On her own initiative and with a lot of effort and dedication, Heydi, works as a field laborer on an agricultural holding in the city. She works around 10 hours every day and thinks that she is successful due to her good work and friendly treatment of her customers. Heydi is very thankful to the Kiva lenders as the help they provide will allow her to make improvements to her home, which is in a deteriorated state. She wants to be able to construct part of it with better and more resistant materials. She will continue working and making efforts to achieve her big dream of having a safe and suitable home.
