Denis's story

There is a woman named Denis, who is humble inside and out. She is a very caring person, she is sociable, and she is very responsible. She was living very happily, but she met a person whom she went to live with for a time. However, it did not go well for her because this person did not treat her in the best way and they had many problems. Apart from that, her sister passed away from a very serious disease and a short time later, she learned that her husband had been unfaithful.

All of these problems led Denis to enter a shaky emotional state, but she then remembered that she has two beautiful children who are the most precious gift God has ever given her. With time, she recovered and she went to live on her own with her children in a new apartment, leaving everything behind and beginning a new life.

Denis met a person who ran a business very similar to a pharmacy and this made Denis realize that she wanted to study pharmaceutical services. In the future, she can see herself running her own business: a pharmacy of her own that her children can help her manage. She also wants to help other people with this dream.

She needs a loan from Kiva because she is a single mother with two children and the costs of maintaining her home and supporting her children do not allow her to set aside much money for savings and she does not have enough savings to cover her tuition payments. If she is granted a loan, she can save some of her money, which she can use for tuition costs and home expenses.
