Cindy Elian's story

Cindy’s a 20-year-old woman living in the city of Cañete, Imperial District, with her husband and small son who she loves and is her reason for living. She’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person together with her husband focuses all her efforts into moving her family forward. Sadly, due to lack of economic resources and because she needed to start work at a very young age, Cindy was unable to study the professional career of Secretary like she’d wanted to. In her free time she enjoys strolling along the welcoming streets in her city and on occasion cooks a delicious ‘Carapulcra con Sopa Seca’ to share with her family.

On her own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Cindy works as a field hand at a local agricultural estate. She works every day for about 8 hours and thinks she does well because of the good way she does her work and the kind way she treats others.

Cindy is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided she will be able to buy sugarcane stalks and wood sticks that will serve to fence in the rear of the house. They are gradually advancing with home construction and Cindy and her family will be able to have increased security and well-being. She will thus continue working toward attaining her greatest dream: to have a proper home that will shelter her family.
