A loan of $375 helped to buy a prosthetic device.


Judith Margaret's story

Judith’s a young 19-year-old living with her mother in Parcona District, Ica, Perú. Judith’s a young woman who very much wants to get ahead which is why she continues forward despite adversities. Because of her limited economic resources, Judith was only able to complete fifth grade in secondary school but would have liked to have studied Business Administration.

Day to day Judith works as a salesperson in a hardware store in her district and with the fruits of her labor helps her mother with household expenses. Judith believes she’s moving forward because she’s responsible and has much faith that everything will improve for her and her family.

Judith is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they’ve given her she will be able to help her mother buy a dental prosthesis because due to an accident she needs to wear a prosthetic device. In this way Judith will help her mother improve her health and she will continue striving to make her greatest dream reality: to study a university career and move her family forward.
