Jeniffer's story

Jeniffer would like to tell a little bit about her life. She was living with her parents and was very spoiled. Everything that she wanted, her parents gave her. But when she became an adolescent, which is that most difficult age, she fell in love with a very nice young guy without knowing that he would cause a lot of pain in her family. She always supported this guy in everything he wanted, but she never received the same in return, so she decided to break up with him, but not before she ended up failing to complete tenth grade because of him.

She met another young guy who fell in love with her, and although he was from the country, she supported him. He started to work in the city and he came to visit her at home. They left to live together and she became pregnant at age 17. Her parents took it very badly, and they threw her out of the house. She left with the young guy, who never had left her alone in anything. After a few days, her parents allowed her to come back home with the young guy. And with the baby that was coming, her relationship with her parents improved. During that year she looked after herself and the baby, and on November 20, 2012 the joy of that home was born and everything began to return to normal. She studied to complete her high school degree, graduated, and started working. But with work she wasn’t able to look after the baby, so she decided to stop working and return to being a caring and attentive mother to her son. She found work in a daycare, which she realized was something she was passionate about. She enrolled her son in the daycare so that she could look after him.

Her parents supported her and she decided to study Comprehensive Early Childhood Care, thinking that she would start her own daycare or a foundation to support children with limited resources after she finished her studies.

This Kiva loan would be a great help, because it is difficult to pay the full tuition payments while she is also paying for the needs of her son. If she receives the Kiva loan, the amount of her tuition payments will be more affordable and she will be able to pay other expenses.
