Karol Estefani's story

Karol, 21, lives in the city of Chincha. A city with beautiful beaches, a varied gastronomy, and beautiful tourist sports such as the "San Jose" farm which among others, is a very popular with tourists.

Karol is very eager to get ahead, above all because she wants to be the pride of her family, especially her parents.

Karol works as a domestic servant. She works about nine hours a day and with the fruit of her labor she is able to study for her degree in IT and help out with the family expenses.

She believes she is getting ahead because she is honest, responsible and above all has many aspirations.

Karol is very thankful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help she has been given, she can improve the small room where she lives since it has cracks in the walls and humidity is leaking in.

This way she can improve her quality of life and keep fighting every day to make her biggest dream come true: "Graduate and be a successful professional".
