A loan of $375 helped to renovate her house.

Gavi Yensi's story

Gavi, 36, is single and lives in the city of Camaná. She is a very kind, hard-working, enthusiastic person who makes every effort to get ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and the need to work from a very early age to help her parents, Gavi was unable to finish her secondary education. This meant she could not get a professional degree. In her free time she enjoys taking walks along the beach near her home.

On her own initiative and with much hard work and dedication, Gavi works as a hired hand on a farm in her city. She carries out tasks such as planting, fertilizing, harvesting, etc. She works an average eight hours a day, every day, and believes work is going well for her because of her kindness to others.

Gavi is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to your help she will be able to renovate her house. She wants to cover the walls and paint them to make the home an adequate living space. This will allow her to continue working and striving toward her goal of leading a better lifestyle.
