Maria Cristina's story

Ms. María Cristina is an enterprising woman who seeks to stand out day after day in the workforce.

This is the reason she was not happy studying to be a stylist, but saw the need in the market to study Aesthetics. She does this with great sacrifices, since she has to meet her work and family obligations. In addition to that, she does not have the necessary resources to cover her monthly bills. That is why she became interested in requesting a loan from Kiva. She wants to finish her program, since her greatest incentive is her children who see her as an example.

It has been a bit of a difficult time, but she came from the countryside to the city approximately six years ago. She has had to go through many difficulties, but she is not satisfied. Instead, it has given her strength and the spirit to keep moving forward and become an excellent professional. In this way, she will be able to give her children what is most important, an understanding that it is never too late to start studying and make your dreams a reality.
