A loan of $375 helped to buy a gas stove.

Amanda Candelaria's story

Amanda’s a 55-year-old woman who earns her living working as an employee at a small institution in her city. With much effort she’s able to cover her household expenses with the fruits of her labor. Amanda believes she’s getting ahead because she’s very responsible and has a strong drive to work.

Amanda is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they’ve provided she will be able to buy a gas stove since her current one is kerosene and it’s in poor condition. In this way, her quality of life will improve and she will continue striving towards reaching her dream of having a place of her own.
