Cindy's story

This is Cindy, a 25-year-old woman who has many dreams. One of them is to become a cosmetologist. She lives with her daughter Nicole and husband Arturo in a happy home but there are some anguish and fights like any normal home. She is an enterprising woman who likes to work hard alongside her husband so that they can provide a good education to their daughter. Cindy was working as a salesperson. She likes to do things right because she does not like mediocrity. She has always liked cosmetology and esthetics and decided to enter school this year because her daughter was also going to school. Cindy had the morning off because her daughter went off to school and then she worked in the afternoon. She finally enrolled and is now happy with her studies because it is what she has always wanted but had not done because she had to work and save. Her other dream is to have her own home but she is not pursuing that dream. She was saving money in order to study and continued saving. First, she wanted to study and then excel and be a woman with good work experience and an education. Unfortunately, Cindy lost her job after enrolling in school and it has been very hard financially because cosmetology, while not having as expensive tuition as other students, requires many materials. Her husband supports her but Cindy is conscious of the costs of their home, her daughter's education, and her tuition. All of these expenses require money, not to mention all of their periodic expenses. That's why she requested the loan agreement with Kiva. She is not discouraged, she will go ahead with her studies and get a job to help at home.
