Yuliza Yeraldine's story

Yuliza is a young 24-year-old. She is very charismatic and has a great desire to get ahead. She lives in the city of Pisco, where there is beautiful countryside, a varied gastronomy, and above all a very hot climate. Yuliza lives with her husband. They have a five-year-old son. She works very hard to get him ahead. She and her husband sacrifice and give their all in order to provide him with a good life and better opportunities to progress. Because of limited economic resources, she was only able to attend school until the fifth grade of secondary school. She would have liked to study aquaculture engineering.
With a great deal of hard work and savings, Yuliza was able to buy a boat to rent out. This makes her an income to cover her household costs. She believes that she is succeeding because she is very kind to her customers, and above all because she has the greatest motivation in the world: her son.
Yuliza is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help she will be able to repair her boat and buy tools and suits for the people who drive the boat. She will have a boat in good shape and be able to keep working every day to get ahead and make her greatest dream reality: to give her son a profession and to be able to build her home out of a good material.
