Santa Elena's story

Santa is a very driven woman. She is eager to get ahead, especially because she is a single mother of two and she loves her children very much. They are her reason to keep fighting to get ahead. That is why for the past four years she has been working hard as a field laborer at a large farm. She thinks the reason why things are going well for her at work is because she is very responsible.

Santa is grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to their help she will be able to make improvements to her home, buy some items, and cover some personal expenses. This will allow her to improve her quality of life and keep working in order to make her dream come true, which is to give her children a good education.
