Irma's story

Irma is a 52 year old woman, who is married, a mother of three and a grandmother to three grandchildren. She has always leaned towards gastronomy and in her youth she took various elective classes. When she got married, the children came and she completely devoted herself to them, always putting off the plan to study, all combined with severe health problems.

Today she is proud to support her children and she enjoys the company of her grandchildren. The health problems have settled down and she has decided to get back the desire to study and apply herself, but now she sees that the economic part could also make her fail. Even so, she is looking for the resources to be able to achieve the proposed goals. That is why Irma wants the agreement with Kiva, so that she can happily finish the cooking program, which is what interests her a lot.
