Yanina's story

Yanina is a 33-year-old woman who lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Parcona, with her young son, whom she loves and who is her principal reason for living. She is a friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who devotes all her efforts to raising her son, as she is both father and mother to him. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and because she needed to start working at a young age, Yanina was unable to study to become a teacher as she would have liked. In her free time she likes to watch movies, and sometimes cooks a delicious pork dish called "Chicharron de Chancho" to share with her family. On her own initiative, and with great effort and dedication, Yanina works as an agricultural laborer on a farm in her city. Her work includes sowing, irrigating, harvesting and other farming tasks. Yanina works every day, starting early in the morning, and for appoximately 10 hours. She likes her work and believes that she is doing well at it because of her good job performance and because of the friendly way in which she treats others. Yanina is very grateful to Kiva lenders, because thanks to their help she will be able to buy a stove. She currently prepares food on a wood-burning stove, which is dangerous for her to use. Yanina will therefore be able to adequately prepare food and have greater security and well-being, so that she can continue working and trying to achieve her great dream of having her own business.
