Orlith's story

Orlith is 62 years old and she lives in Pucallpa with her husband and 4 older children. She is a friendly person, and hard working, as well as enthusiastic. Alongside her husband she has dedicated her efforts to giving her family a better tomorrow. Unfortunately, Orlith could not finish her secondary studies, but thanks to her hard work she was able to study for a career in sewing and in her free time she likes to cook a delicious meal called Sudado de Pescado to share with her family.
On her own initiative, and through hard work and determination, Orlith began working in agriculture. She has a small yuca field and with the help of her husband, they take care of the many different jobs required in the fields. Additionally, she has a small grocery business where she works everyday for around 10 hours and she believes that things are going well for her due to her experience and for the friendly service she provides.
Orlith is very thankful for the lenders at Kiva because it is thanks to their help she will be able to cover the maintenance costs, the purchase of fertilizer and also help to cover expenses of the harvest. In this way, Orlith will be able to see her crop grow and will be able to have better sales. And so, she will continue to work hard in order to achieve her dream of expanding her harvests and having a variety of crops.
