A loan of $400 helped to make improvements to her home.

Estefani's story

Estefani is 20 years old, single and living in the city of Camana with her parents and siblings. She is friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic, with a great desire to prosper in life. Thanks to her own efforts and support from her parents, Estefani was able to study at secretarial school. In her spare time she likes to watch films and, on occasion, she prepares a delicious "arroz con pollo" (a traditional, Peruvian dish made with rice and chicken) to share with her family.

With her own initiative and with a lot of determination and dedication, Estefani works as a secretary in a local secondary school. She works every day for around ten hours per day. She believes that the work is going well because she works well and because of the friendly treatment that she gives to others.

Estefani is very grateful to Kiva lenders as, thanks to the help provided, she will be able to make improvements to her home. She wants to put up plaster, do some painting and lay down a floor as this will be safer and better for her family. Estefani can then continue to work and put in the effort to achieve her great dream of becoming a strong professional.
