Elizabeth Celina's story

Elizabeth is a young, 19-year-old living in the city of Imperial, a city of variable climate where agriculture, especially apple and corn growing, is common. Elizabeth is a young woman who very much wants to get ahead despite adversities that may arise. Elizabeth works day to day as a laborer on a large agricultural estate in her city; she works about 9 hours daily and is able to contribute to her home’s expenses with the fruit of her labor. She believes she’s doing well because she’s responsible and above all she wants to get ahead. Elizabeth is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they are giving her she will be able to repair the walls in her kitchen because they are adobe and they are quite cracked. In this way she’ll be able to provide more security for her family and continue striving to make her greatest dream reality: to study nursing and to own a small pharmacy.
