Esmeralda Rocio's story

Esmeralda lives in the city of Chincha. She is 42 years old, and she works as a sales promoter for a small company in the city. She gets income from this, which she uses to be able to get ahead.

Esmeralda is grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help they have provided, she will be able to buy materials to be able to make improvements to her home. This will improve her family’s quality of life, most of all for her seven year old daughter. This way she will keep struggling to make her big dream come true. Her big dream is to give her daughter a profession.
