A loan of $375 helped improve her home..


Yulisa Katerine's story

Yulisa is 18 years old, single and lives in the city of Chincha with her parents and siblings. She is a friendly, hard working, and an enthusiastic person who has a drive to succeed. Unfortunately, due to lack of economic resources, and because she needed to work to support her parents, Yulisa was not able to get a business degree like she wanted. In her free time, she likes to listen to music and on occasion she cooks a delicious dish called Carapulcra con Sopa Seca to share with her family.

On her own initiative, and through hard work and determination, Yulisa works in handicrafts and the textile industry that is important in her area. She works everyday for about 10 hours and she believes that things are going well because she performs well at her work and because she is friendly to everyone.

Yulisa is very thankful to the lenders of Kiva and, thanks to their help, she will be able to complete the improvement of her home. The rainy season is approaching and she needs to reinforce her roof and the windows in her home. Yulisa will be able to help her family have more security and improve their well-being. And so, she will continue working and striving to achieve her dream of completing her studies for a professional career.
