A loan of $400 helped to pay for her niece's education.


Delia Laura's story

Delia is 32 years old. She is single, and lives in the town of Ica, in the district of Parcona. She is a very nice, hard-working, and enthusiastic person, who always wants to do his best. Unfortunately, due to her economic situation and the need to start working at a very young age, Delia was unable to study agronomy, which is what she would have liked to do. In her spare time, she likes to watch movies, and sometimes cooks a delicious roasted chicken dish, which she shares with her family. On her own initiative, sparing no efforts, and with admirable dedication, Delia works as a cleaning lady in a company in her town. She works every day for about ten hours and attributes her success to her efforts and her amiability towards other people. Delia is very grateful to Kiva lenders, since, thanks to their help, she will be able to pay for her niece's education, since the girl's parents are very poor and cannot afford to pay for school fees nor supplies. Thus, with Delia's help, the girl will be able to go to school. Delia wants to keep working with all her might towards her great dream of having her own restaurant, so as to help her family even more.
